The Germans were operating for their Luftwaffe just below Tobruk at a place called El Adem.

It was sort of a desert operation and they had plenty of aircraft and would give us a serve every, sometimes three times a day and I think he biggest raid we had during the siege of Tobruk would have been up around 100 planes or something like that.

You didn't have much place to shift around.
