Default Return to Taranto by Ivan Berryman

Return to Taranto by Ivan Berryman
Released May 2012

The Italian destroyer Alfredo Oriani slips quietly through the open span of the swing bridge at Taranto after a long Mediterranean mission. This ship was present at the Battle of Matapan in March 1941 and was successful against Allied shipping during Operation Harpoon the following year. After the armistice, she was laid up at Malta and was eventually presented to the French navy at the end of the war as reparation, whereupon the Oriani was renamed D'Estaing and served under the French flag until 1954.

Default Re: Return to Taranto by Ivan Berryman


is this a ghost ship entering a haunted town ?

IMO, on entering port, in this case, the Mare Piccolo, the men would be manning the rails fore and aft and many people would be filling the quays and cheer.

Secondly, the artist seems to have gotten the bridge wrong, i.e. too low
