Kapsali (Kythera), Aegean Sea. 5 May 1944. - Kapsali (Kythera), Aegean Sea. 5 May 1944

Direct hits by cannon shellfire from a Bristol Beaufighter aircraft on an enemy merchantman. Beaufighter Squadrons operating from Middle East bases are continually patrolling inlets and waterways of the Aegean coast for caiques and coastal vessels with supplies, petrol and ammunition for the enemy. Sweeping down from the hills they shoot up with cannon fire and bomb any enemy vessels they observe.
