the "Tiger Convoy"
The British made a supreme effort and pushed the Tiger convoy through the Mediterranean Sea to Egypt with a load of 238 tanks and 43 Hurricanes. This was one of those "supreme efforts" where the British made sacrifices to pull off the operation. I have seen the breakdown of the 238 tanks, but I could not find it. I thought that Churchill's book had the list.
