Monday 14th May 1945
Early in the day we sight Pantalleria and pass close enough to see the terraced fields airstrip and some bomb damage.
From then on we follow the coast and in the evening get a good view of Bizenta. The sea is just like a mill pond. We see several ships and a submarine.
Pantelleria is an Italian island in the Strait of Sicily in the Mediteraanean Sea, 62 miles southwest of Sicily and 37 miles east of the Tunisian coast.
