Operation Rosalind

This was a British naval undertaking to rescue evacuees from the coast of south-western France (11/12 October 1942).

The Q-ship Tarana, an ex-Polish trawler, evacuated at least 32 servicemen, including 18 who had escaped from the Fort de la Rivère, one man who had escaped from the Fort de la Duchère, 13 evaders and at least one Pat Line man, the Abbé Josef Mirda, who had been involved in the de la Rivère break-out.
