Own forward troops – accuracy of bombing to be stressed.

If markers obscured by smoke crews are not to drop bombs into the area of smoke but are to aim carefully at the [underlined] upward [/underlined] edge of the main smoke concentration. Crews are [underlined] not [/underlined] to release bombs unless they can see markers or positively identify main smoke concentration as being in correct place.

Wide markers cancelled by R/T Code words.

In no circumstances are crews to aim at markers which are obviously [underlined] not on the A/P. [/underlined]

Green vereys to increase speed.
