Re: Operation Style 1942

Thank you Brian one more time!

Just, ADM is an official source?

The following books: Eagle's war and Malta convoys tell that it was Wrestler not Partridge, but history.net says Partridge.

Re: Operation Mincemeat

Hi one more time,

During operation Mincemeat Force H was divided when Ark Royal launched her airplanes against Tempio. BB Nelson and its group was 75 miles North of Ark Royal group. So, the destroyers also were divided. 1 for Ark Royal and Hermione, 4 for Nelson.

Re: Convoy AS.7

Thank you Phil,

AS.7 you say was a convoy for Red Sea in 1942. Not the AS.7 I'm looking for, this was late November 1940.
