Mosquito markers will each carry two red & two green spot fires. Whichever are used will be backed up by further Red Spot fires. If it is necessary to indicate which markers are accurate green spot fires will be used & if these are not clear, a green cascading TI. will be dropped over the accurate red spot fire.

As all A/C will attack on the same heading the controller is to correct bombing as necessary by ordering a/c to bomb right or left, over or short.
