View Full Version : Mosquito question....Operation ______?

07-01-2009, 05:05 PM
I'm trying to find out more information about the raids undertaken by RAF Mosquitoes in January 1943 to interrupt a speech by Goering on the occasion of the Nazi Party's 10th anniversary.

I've looked all over and can't seem to find a name for this daring raid.

Did this operation have a name or was it really simply a mission?

No name so far as I know.

S! Nick!

I want a pizza to go, and no anchovies.

Just another raid by the look of it.

<span class="ev_code_YELLOW">30 Jan 1943 - A rally in Berlin to mark the 10th anniversary of Hitler coming to power and addressed by senior Nazi leaders including Goering and Goebbels, is interrupted several times by six raiding Mosquitoes of Nos. 105 and 139 Sqns. In a night-time attack on Hamburg, aircraft of the Pathfinder Force use the H2S bombing radar for the first time.</span>
