Operation Leander (ii)

(Greek mythological heroine)

This was the British undertaking to start the redeployment of forces, equipment and supplies from the UK to Australia, largely for Admiral Sir Bruce Fraserís Pacific Fleet and the planned ĎTigerí redeployment of assets of Air Chief Marshal Sir Arthur Harrisís RAF Bomber Command, as the end of the war with Germany approached and the focus of British operational planning started to switch increasingly to the prosecution of the war against Japan (October 1944 onward).
