    Default Cup and Saucer routine?

    In relation to Coastal Command operations, what would a 'Cup and Saucer' routine consist of?

    Any help appreciated

    Regards
    Peter

    Hi Peter,

    They are two patrol areas for controlling enemy breakout from the North Sea into the Atlantic.

    CUP
    Recce in three sections to cover coast from Marsten Light to Egero.

    60 07N 0502E
    58 26N 0552E

    SAUCER
    Recce in three sections from Egero to The Naze via coast to 8 degrees thence to 57 26N 08 22E to Hanstholm Light

    5757N 0703E
    Coastwise to 08E
