Submarine Antonio Sciesa at Capetown, 8 December 1933

The Balilla-class submarine Antonio Sciesa sailed on 14 September 1933 from La Spezia, together with the sister ship Enrico Toti, for a circumnavigation of Africa, to try out these boats in tropical waters, fly the flag and, also, get some information on French bases such as Diego Suarez.

Damage to the aft section of submarine Galileo Ferraris, suffered during the cruise between Massawa (Italian East Africa) and Bordeaux (German-occupied France), 9 May 1941

In February 1941 the four surviving Italian submarines in the Red Sea were prepared to set sail from Italian East Africa (whose Red Sea ports were threatened by the British and Commonwealth advances), towards Bordeaux, base on the Atlantic Oceans for the Italian submarines operating in that theater.

The Galileo Ferraris, an Archimede-class submarine, departed Massawa on 3 March, under the command of Tenente di Vascello Livio Piomarta; by the end of the month, it had to deal with a violent storm, likely the cause of the damages visible in the picture.

In the evening of 10 April, the boat was spotted by the British submarine HMS Severn, as the operation had been discovered by ULTRA and therefore the British had organized Operation Grab, to intercept the Italian submarines and the German ships meant to refuel them. Although the Severn fired a total of four torpedoes at the Italian submarine, the Ferraris sailed on, not even noticing the attack. Between 16 and 17 April, the Ferraris met with the German tanker Nordmark as planned, to the northwest of Tristan da Cunha, and was duly refuelled.

The submarine finally reached the destination on 9 May 1941, after completing a 14'000 nm cruise in 68 days. Her captain was decorated with the Medaglia d'Argento al Valor Militare for this deed.

Unfortunately, once repaired to be employed in the Atlantic Ocean, the Galileo Ferraris would be sunk in her first Atlantic patrol, at 1223h of 25 October 1941, to the east of the Azores, by HMS Lamerton.

Wrecks of Japanese destroyers Aoi & Hagi (Patrol Boat No.32 & 33) ran aground on Wake Island, 2 April 1942
Completed in 1920, the Japanese destroyer Aoi was the 10th of 21 Momi-class destroyers built for the Imperial Japanese Navy. In 1940, along with several of her sister ships, she was converted a patrol vessel as part of the No.31-class of patrol boats, and was renamed Patrol Boat No.32. On 23 December 1941 she participated in the Second Battle of Wake Island, during which she was deliberately ran aground to land a contingent of Japanese Special Naval Landing Forces marines on the island. Following this, she was the target of US Marine anti-aircraft fire and was set on fire, and was left there following the Japanese capture of the island. She is photographed here on 2 April 1942, during the Japanese occupation of the island.

Visible behind her is the wreck of the destroyer Hagi, another of the Momi-class destroyer that was converted to a patrol vessel, being renamed Patrol Boat No.33. She was used in an identical action as Aoi in the Second Battle of Wake Island and suffered the same fate.

Submarines Archimede, left, and Leonardo da Vinci, right, at Bordeaux in February 1943

The Archimede (commanded by Tenente di Vascello Guido Saccardo) would sail on 26 February 1943, towards it assigned patrol area (between Pernambuco and the Saint Peter and Saint Paul Archipelago). On 15 April, the submarine was spotted and attacked by American Catalinas, and sank at 1625h at 03°23’ S, 30°28’ O. While roughly twenty men survived the sinking, only one (Giuseppe Lo Coco) survived long enough to be picked up by Braziliam fiserhmen.

The Leonardo da Vinci (commanded by Tenente di Vascello Gianfranco Gazzana-Priaroggia) likewise sailed from Bordeaux on 20 February, making for the Indian Ocean. During the patrol it sank six ships, including the liner Empress of Canada, becoming the most successful Italian submarine of the war (not to mention, for tonnage sunk, the most successful non-German submarine). As it made for home, on 23 May it chanced upon a convoy, and the destroyer HMS Active and the corvette HMS Ness attacked and sank her with all her crew.
