The recently formed SAS, under Major David Stirling, had established a successful means of destroying German planes using Lewes bombs, a mixture of plastic explosive and oil that had both an explosive and incendiary effect. They were easy to make, and very small and light.
On this particular evening things went wrong. After the raiders returned to their vehicles they waited for the explosions of the bombs and were disappointed as many failed due to damp primers. A heated debate between Stirling and Captain Paddy Mayne followed. They came up with Plan B, using the extensively armed jeeps the SAS and LRDG used, and embarked upon a jeep MG attack.
