Togo EmbargoEdit

In 1973, 661 NAS flew Scimitar F.58 day fighters from the carrier HMSAS Princess Royal to enforce an embargo against Togo which at that time was becoming increasingly hostile towards the Commonwealth. The embargo ended when a coup overthrew the Togo government and relations began to improve.
