Located along the Orton road, in the vicinity of Lochnabo. Exact location unknown.
The patrol was close to the RAF Lossiemouth and RAF Milltown. There were likely invasion beaches
in the area around Spey Bay. Main Aberdeen Railway lines passes close by in heavily wooded sections that
would have been likely targets and associated bridges over the river Spey. Also Road and Rail bridges over the
Most likely Blairmore House in Huntly.
We suspect they were issued with the standard
TNA – WO199/3388 201 Bn rolls.
