    Default DZ used by RAF during special missions for French BCRA & SIS

    Good morning every body,
    I'd like to introduce myself: I'm Pierre TILLET, son of a former SUSSEX agent. I'm working on a tentative of history of civilians and military agents (BCRA, Commandos, JEDBURGHS, OSS, SAS, SIS, SOE, SUSSEX/OSSEX, SUSSEX/BRISSEX & PROUST) infiltrated into France (or exfiltrated) during the WWII by parachute, by plane landings and/or by sea landings.
    I've a lot of difficulties to find informations such as DZ location, related to SIS or/and BCRA operations such as: Syringa, Clam/Outclass, Wygelia, Roach, Nasturtium, etc.
    Could you, please, help me to find any information related to these operations?.
    Thank you very much,
    Happy Easter
    Pierre

    Pierre, welcome to the Forum,

    I am not the expert you want, but nobody seems to want to reply to you!

    Best I can suggest is that you Google "RAF Tempsford". The Wiki article will give you the Sqns involved in agent/supply operations. The ORBs of those Sqns in the National Archives will be a good place to start. There are also a number of the more important personnel involved. Their books might be some help?

    Hi Pierre,
    would you like me to email all the pilots' reports for the Ops no matter who the pilot was?
    Cheers
    Bob
