Whist looking through old newspapers online for something else I happened to spot and read this article in the New Zealand Herald newspaper dated 20 June 1941. I cannot find anything about this via Google and wonder, is this even true? Note the event, if it happened, may have taken place quite sometime before it made it into the New Zealand newspapers: LAND IN FRANCE [SIZE=1.2em]BRITISH PARACHUTISTS[/SIZE] ATTACK ON AERODROME Guards Overwhelmed LONDON, June 10 Landing in occupied France during an intense Royal Air Force night raid, British parachutists destroyed 30 grounded aeroplanes and the control tower at a German aerodrome, then escaped in torpedo-boats with 10 Germans as prisoners. This daring exploit is reported in an overseas news agency message from Zurich. Parachutists landed at Berck-Sur-Mer, near Calais, and made contact with British agents and French sympathisers. The guards at the aerodrome were overwhelmed by the parachutists, who captured German pilots and destroyed aeroplanes and the control tower with hand grenades, then rushed to the coast with their prisoners to the waiting torpedo-boats.
