Thanks for your response Philip. I was sort of thinking that Messina would be included in the count.
Also, I think naval units returning home is different than land units returning home. From what I can see there is no requirement for a friendly pathway home, they just return to the nearest controlled port of their power.
You have to count Messina. (Gibraltar, too.)
That was what I suspected after reanalyzing the rules and Ed's previous rulings. I just wanted to make sure I had the right answer for my group.
