The German air attack on Bari, Italy opened at 1925 hours 2nd December 1943, with bombers (105 Ju-88s) hitting allied merchants unloading supplies for the forces engaged in the battle for Rome.

Fire on ammunition ships John Harvey and bomb hits on John L. Motley caused massive detonations which shattered windows seven miles away. A bulk gasoline pipeline and supply were severed and the gushing fuel ignited engulfing other ships.

Seventeen merchant ships laden with nearly 35,000 tons of cargo were destroyed (5 American, 5 British, 3 Norwegian, 2 Italian, 2 Polish, with another 7 vessels heavily damaged). The port area was closed for three weeks and was only back in operation by February 1944. ...

About Builders
 Cantieri Riuniti Dell´ Adriatico CRDA, Trieste & Monfalcone
Cantieri Riuniti dell' Adriatico was founded in 1930 from the merger between Stabilimento Tecnico Triestino (Trieste) and Cantiere Navale Triestino (Monfalcone). CRDA built cruisers, submarines and battleships for the Italian Navy. After the wars it remained in business and focused partly on building cruise liners. Nowadays (2010) the yard is still in operation but is owned since 1984 by Fincantieri Group.
