Hello All,
I am new to this site and am searching for anyone that was in Karachi during December 1971 amidst the bombing and missile attacks launched by India against Pakistan.

Best Regards

Fortunately I was not there.
Welcome to the site, I am sure that you will find someone who had the misfortune to be there.

I was on a ship that was diverted from Karachi due to the conflict. As far as I remember there were two British ships hit by missiles one I think was the J and C Harrison's 'Harmattan' and an Ellerman ship. There may have even been a third?
