COPP VI ??

Hi guys

Out of my depth with this, but have been asked to find out more!

On 24 July, 1943 RN Submarine Unseen departed Malta for her 13th war patrol (12th in the Mediterranean). She was ordered to perform several special operations (beach reconnaissance) on the east Calabrian coast of Italy; on board she had a party from COPP VI. At 22:00 hours on 30 July (zone -2), she surfaced to launch the COPP party for a beach reconnaissance near Cape Colonna, Crotone. The folbot with the party left shortly after 22:00hrs and returned at 00:30. The next night at 21:40hrs she surfaced to launch the COPP party for a beach reconnaissance near Cape Colonna. The folbot with the party left at 22:00hrs and returned at 00:55. On 3 August (zone -2), Unseen surfaced at 21:40hrs to launch the COPP party for another beach reconnaissance, near Cape Rizzuto. The folbot with the party left around 22:00hrs and returned at 00:40.

What was the purpose of this, and what was COPP ??

Any help appreciated

Cheers
Brian
