Success and failure in the port of Singapore—Z Special Unit and the Jaywick and Rimau raids
In 1943 and 1944, Australian special forces launched two seaborne attacks on Japanese shipping in Singapore Harbour, Operation Jaywick and Operation Rimau. The attacks were characterised by stealth and audacity; one was wildly successful, the other resulted in the loss of all participants for little or no result.
