16/02/1941 Commando Raid ?

As a result of searching for Sergey's 830 Sqn question I came across the mention of a Commando Raid .

HMS Triumph landed Commandos on the 16/02/1941 near Foggia during the night.

However somewhere I also read that because a Whitley V, T4167 had recently come down in the sea at the mouth of the river Sele, near the pick -up point for the "Colossus" Commando's the rescue submarine Triumph had been cancelled. So it would seem that Triumph had been given another Commando task ?

What were these raids?
Were they part of "Colossus" or something separate ?
What were the targets?
What were the result and fate of the Commandos ?

Many thanks
