View Full Version : Scuttle Raid: 50 Squadron Operations Record Book January 1942

Please can anyone identify how often 'scuttle raids' were used in Bomber Command?

It has been described as 'A code-name for a roving commission where individual aircraft bomb built-up areas through gaps in the clouds, on a GEE fix or an ETA at Target'. It doesn't sound a very good technique to me. I have found it once in the 5o Squadron ORB, on 7 January 1942.
