III. SITUATION

We have met heavy resistance on the island of AGIOS EFSTRATIOS. There has been little sign of indigenous activity, neither civilian nor HELLENIC ARMED FORCES. The enemy seem to be using a variety of Eastern Bloc equipment. We have received HUMINT that there is still a civilian presence in the small settlement to MAXWELL's WEST, GR 020 027. Some of these civilians have taken up arms and are attempting to repel the ENEMY FORCES.

 

ENEMY FORCES

Strength: The HELLENIC ARMED FORCES had two companies stationed on the island. The total population of the island is approximately 300. J2 estimates that approximately three companies would be required to overthrow the entire island. Roughly two platoons were encountered during SEA LION I, giving weight to this estimate.

Morale: assessed as high.

Small arms: Eastern Bloc.

Heavy weapons: Some RPGs and HMGs.

Vehicles: presumed limited.

Aircraft: presumed limited.

Air threat: contact has been lost with two anti-air emplacements on the island. They are now assumed hostile.
