    Default "Jim Crow" fighter patrols in autumn 1944

    Hi all,

    according to the Rawlings, John D.R., Fighter Squadrons of the RAF and their Aircraft via https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glossa...AF_code_names:

    Jim Crow coastal patrols to intercept enemy aircraft crossing the British coastline; originally intended to warn of invasion in 1940.

    but in autumn 1944 I would expect this code name would be rather related to patrols against to V1s or maybe also V2s?

    TIA
