Pen and ink drawing with over-washes by Raphael Piscettaro of Naples, Italy. This boat, the 'Nembo', after which the clas of destroyers was named, was built for the Royal Italian Navy in 1901, and was destroyed during World War I, when a torpedo from the Austrian coastal submarine 'U 16' sank her off the coast of Albania on 17th October 1916. The U-16 was itself sunk in the same action, either by being rammed by a vesel from the convoy the destroyer was escorting, or posibly by the explosion of one of the sinking Italian ship's depth charges.
