Crimond  is an area of small villages to the East of Fraserburgh. At Crimond there was a major RNAS base with 4 runways, and including a seaplane base.

Crimond had a road and nearby railway infrastructure that any invading force could make good use of due to suitable invasion beaches being in the area.

Group Commander is Lieut. J.L Low, Headmaster from Old Deer, and 2nd Lieut,. A. Forbes, Fraserburgh.
