 Operation Biting - Encyclopedia, History, Geography and Biography
During World War II, Operation Biting was a Combined Operations raid to capture components of a German Wuerzburg radar set at Bruneval, France, on 27/28 February, 1942.
On 5 December a low level reconnaissance flight by Tony Hill took very clear front and side pictures of the Wuerzburg radar with a person in the frame which allowed the size of the radar dish about 3 meters (10 feet) in diameter to be assesed.
The success of Operation Biting was splashed across the British press and went some way to improve the publics' morale after a string of failures of which the armed forces attempt to stop the German Channel Dash two weeks earlier was a recent example.

 Aquatint. Beguin.
The purpose of graining is to protect the plate during the biting process in such a way that the biting forms a series of little hollows.
For example, biting should not last longer than 5 or 6 minutes with a 33°B mordant (whose action is rapid and superficial) whereas a 46° solution can be left to bite the plate as long as twenty minutes.
Once the biting has begun, the pan must be rocked back and forth so that the fl liquid produced by the biting washes off the plate and is followed, without interruption, by a wave of fresh mordant.

During the 1960s The Regiment was involved in operations in Cyprus in 1964 (1 Para), Radfan in 1964 (3 Para), Borneo in 1965 (2 Para) and Aden in 1967 (1 Para).
The operation was hurriedly mounted and resulted in a scattered drop (the drop zone being selected in the air by the lead aircraft) fortunately unopposed, at Depienne.
Divisions normally are equipped to operate independently in the field, and thus have a full internal complement of supporting reconnaissance (one or two cavalry regiments in the light role), artillery (in modern times three or four regiments), engineers (about three squadrons), medical, supply and transport, etc.
