The Rohna Survivors Memorial Association

On November 26, 1943, during World War II, 1,138 men perished when a British troopship, the HMT Rohna, was attacked from the air and destroyed in the Mediterranean Sea off the coast of Algeria. Two important but virtually unknown historical events occurred at that time.
