Hi all,

Force B: 1 CV: Ark Royal, 1 BC: Renown, 2 CL: Sheffield and Despatch, 9 DD: Duncan, Encounter, Firedrake, Faulknor, Forester, Fury, Jaguar, Kelvin and Wishart.

Force C: 1 CV: Eagle, 2 BB: Malaya and Ramillies, 3 CL: Ajax, Orion and Sydney, 9 DD: ?

Force D: 1 CA: Berwick, 2 CL: Calcutta and Coventry, 4 DD: Greyhound, Vampire, Vendetta, Voyager escorting convoy MW.4: Transports Clan Ferguson, Clan Macaulay, Breconshire and Memnon.

Force F: 2 CL: Manchester and Southampton, 1 DD ? and 4 CT: Gloxinia, Salvia, Hyacinth and Peony escorting transports Clan Forbes, Clan Fraser and New Zealand Star.
