COPP HQ Personnel

 

 

Peter Palmer (see below) has advised us that those in COPP 3 when in Algiers and Malta from 6 January 1943 to 31 July 1943 were:

Hallet, P, S/A
Harris, P J, A/B
Hinkley, J, Spr
Magnall, R B, Lt, RNVR
McHarg, N T, Ltd, DSO, RN
Sinclair, G S, Lt, DSO, RN
Palmer, P F, EM
Parsons, Captain, RE
Reilly, J, L/S
Rice, N E C, Captain, RE

Accompanied by:
Cannings, H E, S/Mkr
Spence, W, S/Wright
both of whom were based at Cap Matafou and returned to Hayling Island to become HQ staff when COPP 4 moved to Malta.

COPP 3 were moved from Algiers to Malta for the Sicily Beach reconnaissances. They lost so many personnel that COPP 4 (who operated from Algiers and Cap Matafou) were moved to Malta and the two parties amalgamated.
