Review: Operation Oyster: Rijken, Schepers and Thorning

Op-Oyster-e1409264638682-150x150.jpg


Operation Oyster was a low level daylight raid on 6th December 1942 by a mixed force of Ventura, Boston and Mosquito aircraft from the RAF’s No 2 Group. The target was the Phillips factory at Eindhoven; a major manufacturer of electronic valves. Luftwaffe demand for values was rising rapidly for radar sets, radios and navigational aids. Putting the factory out of action for many months would strike a powerful blow against military capability of the Third Reich.
