Feck me, probably not a popular posting for aircrew:

"On 22 April 1943, a formation of 27 fully loaded Me 323s was being escorted across the Sicilian Straits by Bf 109s of JG 27 when it was intercepted by seven squadrons of Spitfires and P-40s. Twenty one of the Me 323s were lost while [4] three of the P-40s were shot down by the escorts."
The Afrika Korps surrendered on 13th May 1943. ISTR they used Me 323s in a desperate effort to get supplies from Italy. It seems that plan didn't work very well.
