Another minefield question

Post by jan-olof » Sat Jul 13, 2019 9:20 pm

Hello again,

does anyone know if minefield JX A, laid by HMS Welshman on Oct. 25th, 1941, was close to MQ BF 3639. The German minesweeper M 4030 Regulus was lost there on Dec. 2nd.

Best Regards,

hello, Jan-Olof,

according to http://www.naval-history.net/xDKWW2-4110-37OCT02.htm , the mines were laid off St. Valery-en-Caux. That would be slightly more to the East, in BF 37

greetings, Urs

Hello Urs,

I agree that BF 3639 isn't quite outside St. Valery-en-Caux but it felt close enough that I had to ask.

Best regards,

Jan-Olof
