The raid over the night of 14/15 February 1943, consisted of two Norwegian Motor Torpedo Boats (MTBs) and seven men from No. 10 (Inter-Allied) Commando and No. 12 Commando. Two German ships were torpedoed and a third struck a mine laid by the MTBs. One of the MTBs ran aground and had to be abandoned.[1]
