Re: ATTACK ON FW 200 22 JUL 43

Those operations were carried out at the same time with aircraft of 19 Group sweeping the "Musketry" areas and those of 15 Group the "Seaslug" area. The anti-submarine striking forces, like the group formed around HMS ARCHER, operated primarily in support of Operation "Musketry" in order to attack U-boats within 4 hours after being located by land-based aircraft in the patrol area. Both operations were replaced by Operation "Percussion" on 30 August 1943.
