    As Goa was a Portugese colony, it was technically a neutral territory on the coast of India.

    Apart from "Boarding Party: The Last Action of the Calcutta Light Horse" (fictionalised as Sea Wolves with David Viven) I'm finding it difficult to find any histories of Goa's involvement during the war.

    I'm sure I've read mentions of Goa being used for espionage, shelters for U-boats and surface raiders etc, but google has frustrated me.

    Has anybody got any info they'd like to share?

    I'm Portuguese, but I never heard anything at all about Goa in the period. How does the word "backwater" sound to you :lol:
