History of the Liner Victoria, sunk 23 Jan 1942

This is a beautiful website with a detailed history and lots of material relating to the history of the liner Victoria, sunk 23 January 1942 by two aerial torpedo hits, first by a Bristol Beaufort of No. 39 Squadron R.A.F., and then by a Fairey Albacore of No. 826 Squadron F.A.A. both operating out of Berka airfield in northern Cyrenaica.


A detailed account of her loss is (in Italian) at this link:


Both sites are well worth a visit.
