Operation DC (ii)

This was the British naval delivery of stores and mail for the ships remaining in the Kola Inlet of the northern USSR during the long summer days when the running of arctic convoys was deemed inadvisable (29 June/8 July 1944).

The destroyers Matchless, Meteor and Musketeer departed British waters on 29 June, delivered their supplies and mail, and returned to British waters between 3 and 8 July.
