Operation DU (ii)

This was a British naval undertaking against installations at Tromsø in German-occupied Norway (16 October 1940).

The elderly fleet carrier Furious launched 11 Fairey Swordfish and three Blackburn Skua aircraft of the FAA’s Nos 801 and 816 Squadrons to attack oil tanks and the seaplane base, but the aircraft achieved only very limited success.
