We present a formula describing the action of a gener- alised Steenrod operation of Z2-type [14] on the cohomology class represented by a proper self-transverse immersion f : M # X. Our formula depends only on the Umkehr map, the characteris- tic classes of the normal bundle, and the class represented by the double point immersion of f. This generalises a classical result of R. Thom [13]: If 2 Hk(X;Z2) is the ordinary cohomology class represented by f : M # X, then Sqi() = fwi(f ).
