    Default DZ Oscric Location ?

    Hi,

    299 Squadron carried out three SOE operations on August 25th 1944. 'Oscric 13 0 Oscric 50 and Oscric 52. ORB is confusing and notes from a ex nav suggest DZ in Belgium but the Coordinates suggest southern France.

    Can anyone confirm.

    TIA

    Steve I think you will find it will be OSRIC not OCRIC and these were drops of supplies to Belgium.
    Tempsford did a lot of drops around Sept 44
