Operation MH1

'MH1' was a British naval undertaking to send a cruiser minelayer from Egypt to Malta with 350 tons of desperately needed food (10/12 November 1942).

The ship used was Manxman, which was supported by the escort destroyers Aldenham, Beaufort, Belvoir, Croome, Dulverton and Hurworth also carrying men and supplies, and this force reached Malta on 12 November as the first ships to reach the beleaguered island in 12 weeks.
