Operation Scaramouch

(picaresque commedia dell'arte character)

'Scaramouch' was a British unrealised naval operation for Lieutenant Ronald F. Seddon’s MGB-718 of the 15th Motor Gun Boat Flotilla to rescue 10 escaped Allied prisoners of war from the north coast of Brittany in German-occupied France (15/16 April 1944).

The operation was cancelled and the boat was used instead in the 'Scarf' undertaking.
