    Default Bullseye & Muffle?

    Hi all - I have been shown a log book from someone operating as crew in Halifaxes from 1652 Conversion Unit. The aircraft/crew were operating from Marston Moor in 1944 and it is what was listed in the "Duty" column that has intrigued me, as one was listed as "H2S Bullseye" and the following day "H2S Muffle". H2S I am aware of but not a clue as to "Bullseye" or "Muffle".

    Can anyone help please.

    Bomber Intelligence by WE Jones defines Bullseye as "Night Affiliation exercise with searchlights and anti-aircraft guns". More information is provided on this thread: http://www.rafcommands.com/forum/sho...lsey-excercise

    I have seen Muffle mentioned as an exercise but sadly no definition.

    Main areas of research:

    - CA Butler and the loss of Lancaster ME334 (http://rafww2butler.wordpress.com/ )
    - Aircrew Training (Basic / Trade / Operational / Continuation / Conversion)
    - The History of No. 35 Squadron (1916 - 1982) (https://35squadron.wordpress.com/)

    [Always looking for copies of original documents / photographs etc relating to these subjects]
