4.0 out of 5 stars Irregular commandos destroy Axis ships in neutral Goa, 1943., 22 Nov 1998
By A Customer
This review is from: Boarding Party: The Last Action of the Calcutta Light Horse (Bluejacket Books) (Paperback)
This story centers around the destruction of an Axis radio located on a German merchant ship interned in neutral Goa during 1943. The raiders were auxillary force (part-time) members of the Calcutta Light Horse and Calcutta Scottish. With few exceptions they were British businessmen that volunteered to conduct this mission without recognition. The German radio was being used to direct U-Boats operating in the Indian Ocean. The raider traveled across India by rail joining their ship, a dredging barge, at Calicut. The traveled north to Goa overnight and in the early morning attacked the German ship. Three other Axis merchant ships also interned were scuttled by their crews. The raiders continued to Bombay and returned home to Calcutta. Officially the ships were destroyed by their crews which had mutinied.
