Operation White sought to bring the aircraft carrier HMS Argus within close enough distance of the island for twelve RAF hurricanes to be flown off to make their way to Malta. The advice to Admiral Somerville was that the 400 miles was within their range and in due course the planes, escorted by two Fleet Air Arm Skua aircraft, took off. Eight of them were lost making the journey.
