The remnants of the ‘NP’ Bn were then evacuated to the Italian mainland a few weeks before the September surrender. AIR FORCE SPECIAL FORCES The birth of the Air Force special forces was also prompted by the plan to assault Malta, although in their case only very late in the day.

After the Malta assault was cancelled the ‘P’ Bn was deployed as ordinary infantry; in January 1943 it was sent to garrison Toulon, the main French naval base in the Mediterranean, but in February it was pulled back to Italy, at first to Livorno and then to Tarquinia.
