During evening of the 6th April, German forces launched an air attack on Piraeus, leading to the explosion of the ammunition ship Clan Fraser. This major explosion destroyed 12 other ships and much of the harbor.
Meanwhile in northern Greece, the British Royal Air Force 112 Squadron (operating between 12 and 16 Gloucester Gladiators) flies off to engage the German air force in northern Greece. Two Australian pilots flew with this force - Flying Officers C.F. Fry and G.F. Graham.
2016 is the 75th anniversary of the battle of Greece and Crete. We will commemorate those who served in these campaigns - including those of the 2nd Anzac Corps - by posting the days events from 1941.
