Heinz Migeod shipping attacks

 Heinz's group did shipping missions from various airports in 1941 and 1942.  These included Argos, Maleme, Rhodes  and Martuba (Libya). He was involved with the sinking of Mountbatten's ship "Kelly" and attacks on the famous Malta convoys.

Please note that the ship that was captained by Mountbatten and sunk was "Kelly" and Mountbatten was picked up by "Kipling". These two ships are a bit confused in the video interview.
