In the current VJ-day thread I have posted an article by Professor Ashley Jackson, on how VJ-day was celebrated, which includes for me this discovery: Link: Victory over Japan Day: Celebrating the end of World War II | Feature from King's College London There is a second article by him: The British Empire's War Against Japan: A Reflection | Feature from King's College London This has a broad, strategic overview and refers very briefly to the plan for 'Tiger Force' of bombers to participate in the invasion of Japan. Just found a couple of threads here, which show 'Tiger Force' was not deployed to the Far East. I assume the British bombers were operating from RN aircraft carriers, as I have not heard much about long-range RAF bombers being there. There are threads here on the Yangtse Incident, the earlier British presence @ Shanghai and the start of the war. Nowt on any such British bombing operation. Does the collective knowledge and wisdom here know about this British bombing of mainland China, on target(s) along the Yangtse River?
