    Have Roma - DVD

    Hi all. I have just watched the DVD Nave Roma Le Ultima Ore. This DVD is a MUST for all with an interest in the Regia Marina. I was under the impression that it was a film but is in fact a documentary and features survivors and descendants. The DVD gives a detailed account to the lead up...
