I hope this is the right forum to post this in.  I am looking for any information or photo/s of the Italian Tanker Giovanna Lolli Ghetti.  She exploded and sank on February 21 1974.  I was later assigned to the USCGC Mellon which provided medical aid and rescued the survivors.  Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Dick Levesque

Hi, I'm not having any photo of the Giovanna, but I could tell you thou that I was at that time a young crewmember onboard the Norwegian ship "Tamelane" that first came to the area and started to pick up the Italian crew while waiting for the USCGC Mellon. Most of the officers and crew onboard Tamelane was to busy searching for and rescuing people in the sea. I know that a 2nd engineer onboard "Tamelane" was very busy taking picture of the burning and sinking Giovanna. Since it's more that 35 years ago I do not remember his name, but as a long shot the ship owner Wilhelm Wilhelmsen located in Oslo my be of some help from their archive. The only thing I remember was that this engineer came from Bergen area in Norway. Tamelane does not longer exist, but even so, if you are into the detectives work, this could be a path to follow.

Good luck with your search, if you ever get a picture in hand, pls. call me. I still have my rescue medal in gold, that I received from the Italian ship owner. I would very much appreciate a picture of the Geovanna and USCGC Mellon, to put on the wall beside the medal.

Regards

This is just the same looking medal as we was awarded from the shipowner after resquing the crew members in the Pacific where the ship sank. Its only the date that changed and engraved name at the backside. Where did you get that medallion??
