    There were attacks on German shipping in St.Peter Port Harbour and a Typhoon made an attack on a German radar station in St.Sampsons. Sorry not to be more helpful here but I actually really don't know much about the raids that occurred other than those very basics bits of info.

    Interesting stuff, was there bombing of the harbour at the beginning of the occupation ???, the Germans thought the trucks at the harbour were military but in fact they were delivering tomatoes for export !!

    Yes, the Germans bombed just before the Islands were captured. Basically because the British Government had forgotten or just didn't inform the Germans that the Islands had been de-militarised.
