692 aircraft - 462 Lancasters, 200 Halifaxes, 30 Mosquitos,

were sent to bomb 6 German positions in front of a mainly American ground attack in the Villers Bocage Caumont area. The presence of cloud caused many difficulties and only 377 aircraft were able to bomb, on to Oboe markers, and only 2 of the 6 targets were effectively hit.

4 Lancasters lost.
