    Default 800 Squadron Hellcats Aegean 1944 friendly fire incident

    800 Sqn Hellcats Aegean 1944 friendly fire incident

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Hi guys

    In October 1944, four Hellcats of 800 Squadron operating from HMS Emperor sadly strafed four Coastal Forces MTBs in a bay on the Greek island of Skopelos. Three of the craft were damaged and there were casualties.

    Can anyone provide information, please?

    I have tried TOCH without any result.

    Cheers
    Brian

    Hi Brian, have you looked at "AIR22/138 A.M.W.R. Air Staff Operational Summary and reports of enemy action against U.K. Nos 1410-1470 1944 Oct.- Nov."? As you probably know, it is not confined to UK activity. FAA ops such as FF sometimes appear, perhaps up to a week after the event.

    Regards,
    Bruce
