Nomi In Codice Operazioni Navali Inglesi

Recommended Posts

Penso che l'elenco che segue, anche se sicuramente incompleto, possa risultare di interesse: è difatti una raccolta abbastanza completa dei nomi in codice assegnati dalla Royal Navy - soprattutto durante la seconda guerra mondiale - alle varie operazioni navali (parecchie delle quali hanno coinvolto la Regia marina) che hanno visto impiegate unità navali britanniche.

L'elenco è tratto dal sito www.warships.net, ormai non più operante da molto tempo ma dal quale, fortunatamente, in passato ho scaricato e conservato parecchio materiale.
