Tiens au fait, sachant que tu as un surnom Haddock, avais tu connaissance de la ‘’Haddock Force’’ ?
In June 1940, with the inevitable entry of Italy into the war, a special force ('Haddock Force') is created in preparation for immediate attacks on that country. Two squadrons of Wellingtons from Nos 99 and 149 were detached to airfields near Marseilles in the south of France and were ready for operations from the 11th of June. There were, however, strong objections about the use of the Wellingtons from the local French civilian and military authorities who feared a reprisal attack from the Germans - one which they felt they could not defend. Despite assurances from the RAF commander (again, it was Air Marshal Barratt) that the planned attacks had the full support of the French Government, the locals protested. It was left to Prime Minister Churchill to contact the French Premier, Reynaud, who confirmed his support. But this failed to convince the authorities in the south. That night, as the aircraft began their take-off run, French soldiers positioned themselves on the runway under orders to stop the British aircraft from leaving. Despite negotiations between senior British and French commanders to allow the raids, 'Haddock Force' was disbanded and returned home the following day.
