Exmouth Gulf

From here, under Operation 'Jaywick', in 1943 a captured Japanese fishing vessel, the re named 'Krait', sailed with 14 commandos of the famed Allied 'Z' Special Unit into Singapore Harbour. Leaving the Krait and occupying canoes the commandos planted time bombs on Japanese ships and were responsible for sinking seven and damaging a total of 40 000 tonnes of enemy shipping. Believing the project could be later repeated in another operation all of the commandos were captured and executed. (The Krait is one of the most venomous snakes in the world.)
Interesting history Denis. I had not heard of a Krait before.
