It flew in support of operations airlifting fuel to Zambia, unloading at Ndola andLusaka and then flying across the Congolese border to Elizabethville to refuel for the return flight to Nairobi. Also resuppliing the temporary RAF base at Majunga in Malagasy used by detachments of Shackletons patrolling the Mozambique Channel to enforce the UN blockade of Rhodesia. It ferried troops of the Staffordshire Regiment from Khormaksar to Entebbe to put down a mutiny by the Ugandan Army. In addition air dropping supplies during the fighting in Aden & Borneo.
