Sub Hunters Australian Sunderland Squadrons in the Defeat of Hitler's U-boat Menace 1942-43 by A Cooper

10 and 461 Squadrons of the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) flew Sunderland flying boats from bases in Wales and Devon as part of RAF Coastal Command; these two sister squadrons flew long-range daylight missions over the eastern Atlantic, patrolling Britain's southwest approaches.
They hunted and killed U-boats transiting between their mid-Atlantic hunting grounds and their bases in Bordeaux, and fought furious air battles over the heaving seas of the Bay of Biscay, against Luftwaffe Ju88 long-range fighters tasked specifically with shooting them down. These two Australian squadrons established a combat record second to none.
