Hello Jordi and Thomas,

I would be interested to know the source of CAP HADID and Sperrbrecher 14 being damaged during operation FRANKTON.
The German documents ("Sabotage im Hafen Bordeaux, 12.12.1942" in T1022/2369) I have mention only ALABAMA, TANNENFELS, DRESDEN and PORTLAND damaged. A fifth vessel, Sperrbrecher 5, was targeted but the limpet apparently failed to attach and dropped to the bottom, the subsequent explosion caused no damage.

Many thanks,

Platon
