Re: Which RAF Squadron dropped SOE agent Tazelaar

Hello All,

I find it simply amazing (and disturbing), that Foot in his work, "SOE in the Low Countries", states, quite categorically (in three separate citations), that Tazelaar(NECKING) and Faber(BOBSLEIGH), were dropped on the 18/19 November, 1944. He also mentions that Faber(DANIEL/JEDBURGH), had previously been dropped on 17 September, 1944.

Marcel, I accept that 620 Sqn operated (6 a/c), on 1/2 November, 1944, with the pilots*, as stated by you. Would you care to share your source for this information? So I can decide whether to accept (in the future), as a reliable source, what Foot has to say.

*
1451972 F/Sgt William Cowell KAY RAFVR (later DFM, LG:26/1/45)

and ...

144313 F/O John Desmond RUSSELL RAFVR.

Col

Re: Which RAF Squadron dropped SOE agent Tazelaar

I wonder if the confusion has anything to do with CRIENA being a two-part mission? It appears (I have not double-checked) that 644 Sq dropped 24 containers and 3 'packages' in Holland on the 22nd October in an op called CRIENA I. Perhaps 'packages' was a discrete phrase for agents?
