COPP 3

Peter Palmer (COPP 4 and 6) has advised us that those in COPP 3 when in Algiers and Malta from 6 January 1943 to 31 July 1943 were:

Burbidge, G W, Captain, RCE (Lost on Sicily beaches)
Cooper, N W, Lt (Lost on Sicily beaches)
Hutton, D M, Wtr
Loasby, L/Sgt, SBS
Main, C, L/Sea (Lost on D Day beaches)
McGuire, J, A/B
Seagust, J B, A/B
Teacher, N J M, Lt Com, DSO, RN (Lost on Sicily beaches)
Walker, J W, Spr

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.
