    Default Operation Busby 14.1.1943

    Hi all,

    in ORB Appendicies of No. 19 Grp CC I found a note at 14.1.1943 "Operation Bushby in force".
    Anyone can provide me any details reagrding this operation?

    I had no luck with Mr. Google yet.

    TIA

    Hello Pavel,
    I do not have access to my notes at the moment but am reasonably sure BUSBY was air operations against/looking for blockade runners using the Bay of Biscay route. Does this fit?

    Hi Bruce,
    yes it should fit as for example on 26.1.43 our 311 Sq was on a bombing raid on Bordeaux with the task to destroy a blockade runner which slipped through.
