Ships of the Mediterranean Fleet have brought another convoy successfully through the entire Mediterranean without a single challenge from the enemy.  Although the Allied vessels passed close to the Pantelleria Islands and Sicily, no opposition was encountered from the Italian navy or air force.  The convoy was carrying reinforcements and supplies for Allied forces in North Africa.  In recent days British warships have also launched attacks in the Adriatic and the RAF have attacked air bases in Tripoli.
