Was this the 100 octane fuel used to boost the performance of the Merlin engine? There is a very interesting post at the following link that discusses it, but the fuel appears to have been shipped in and stockpiled from the U.S.

Was Elesmere Port where it came ashore rather than where it was manufactured?
