Operation ANGLO
« am: 12 September 2021, 20:29:34 »

ANGLO is a well known operation of WW2 which included the raid against two airfields in Rhodes in mid September 1942. My questions are:

1. Does anybody know which Italian or German squadrons were based on the raided airfields?

2. There is a movie called THEY WHO DARE of 1954 which refers to this operation. A (T class???) submarine and a patrol boat were used for the needs of the film. Does anybody possibly  know the real names of these ships?

Thank you
