request: Ammo expand. figures 1940

Post by delcyros » Fri Jan 25, 2013 8:32 pm

I am trying to put things together in my databases. Is there any knowledge about the amount of 8" & 6" ammo expanded by the italian cruiser divs. during the battles of Calabria? I have a figure of 923 6in shells expanded by ORION, NEPTUNE, SYDNEY, GLOUCESTER and LIVERPOOL but no individual breakdown.
I have a figure of 1300 shells expanded at Cape Teulada by british forces (unfortunately without individual breakdown) but some data from the italian side:

POLA at Cape Teulada, 118 shells, 1 hit
FIUME at Cape Teulada, 218 shells, 1 hit
GORIZIA at Cape Teulada, 123 shells, 0 hits
TRIESTE at Cape Teulada, 96 shells, 0 hits
TRENTO at Cape Teulada, 92 shells, 0 hits
BOLZANO at Cape Teulada, 26 sehlls, 0 hits

Is it possible to verify these data?
Thanks in advance,
delc

regarding german ships you may look into the series
MDV 550 Taktik and MDV 601 Operationen und Taktik Auswertung wichtiger Ereignisse des Seekrieges

for instance Scheer performances
MDV 550 Taktik Heft 7, Kreuzerkrieg im Atlantik
Meine Herren, es kann ein siebenjähriger, es kann ein dreißigjähriger Krieg werden – und wehe dem, der zuerst die Lunte in das Pulverfaß schleudert!
