'Supplements to the London Gazette' are of great value to the naval and military historian. In many cases they represent the first publicly published accounts of the engagements concerned, and normally contain excellent maps and plans together with direct transcripts from official despatches not easily available elsewhere.This supplement includes the following transcripts: Cunningham (CinC Mediterranean): despatch to Admiralty 16 January 1941; Boyd (Captain of HMS Illustrious): despatch to Admiralty 13 November 1940; Lyster ( Rear-Admiral Commanding Mediterranean Aircraft Carriers): covering note 26 November 1940; fine folding plan of the harbour and environs with attack details noted.
