HMS Utmost - Taranto PatrolRead
From the radio room we received a routine signal from the Admiralty to say that the RAF reconnaissance had reported that a Naval force was due to leave Taranto within the next 48 hours. We were instructed to take up station in the centre of the instep which formed the bay south of Taranto. The areas immediately to the south of Utmost would be covered by two more 10th Flotilla boats, HMS Upright, and the last by HMS Upholder.
