UJ202 ex MELPOMENE and UJ208 ex SPINGARDA

They were both built as Gabbiano Class corvettes, for service during the World War II. On the 1st of November UJ202 and UJ 208 (ex Spingarda)  had the task to escort the Wikinger II convoy, while the German Army tried to pull out the resources from the Sibenik and Zadar area to Rijeka in the north of Adriatic.

They were attacked by the same pair of Royal Navy destroyers that attacked the TA20 ex AUDACE. Royal Navy ships had one specific goal: to destroy both German corvettes and the TA-20 destroyer.
