One Response to Shore Bases

  1. Hi Oldtiffie,
    Thanks for getting in touch.I think this has been discussed prior to my taking over the website. What I need to do is to get our researcher to have a look at any log books concerning the Ausonia etc. If my memory is correct I believe the argument was that St Angelo was never officially declared a minesweeper shore base. I will look into it after my return from the TCA reunion. If you have any supporting evidence I would be grateful if you could e-mail it to me.

    Best wishes
    Bob
