Full Version: 36th Engineers at Fedela, 19 November 42
You're currently viewing a stripped down version of our content. View the full version with proper formatting.

I am looking for information about the 36th Engineer's operations at Fedela after the initial invasion. I need data re: operating the port and the D+5 convoy. I know that Company C was in Fedela, but I am looking for reports, first hand accounts and especially photos of the port and the work there.


I am a historian working on a book about a freighter that called at Fedela on 18 Nomber 1942, a part of the first followup convoy to the invasion: S.S. SANTA MARGARITA. She was carrying ammunition, gasoline in cans, 90MM AA guns, trucks etc I know the name of the ship may not be mentioned, but activities will be..


Any help or ideas would be much appreciated.
