    Default Bomber Command Target Codes Names

    Examination of the Form "B's" for specific operations for Bomber Command in March 1945, suggest code names were assigned for target cities in Germany. For example, I believe it is correct to assume following code names for these targets:

    Mar 1, 1945 Operations: Mannheim. Chub
    Mar 2, 1945 Operations: Koln. Trout
    Mar 5, 1945 Operations: Chemnitz. Blackfin
    Mar 7, 1945 Operations: Dessau. Shad A
    Mar 11, 1945 Operations: Essen. Bullhead
    Mar 25, 1945 Operations: Hanover. Eel

    Is there a "Master List" somewhere to which we can refer?

    Thanks Dave. The second link is seems reasonable and matches some of my understanding.

    I did try and search but for some reason was unsuccessful narrowing my criteria.

    Hi Jim
    I photographed a file (an 8 Gp one, I think it was) up at Kew not long ago, with a Target Codes list in it. Can send you copies of the pages if you still need them.

    ps That Bunker Museum copy list looks familiar, although I think there were some additional pages with some extra entries too. Unless I'm mistaken.
