Harvesters in a Raid

Reported in the Bromley & District Times, 6th September 1940


Harvesters in a Raid- September 1940

Mr. E. S. Oak-Rhind writes to The Times:-

Somewhere among the fields of Kent while waiting for the Hun advance, I watched the harvesters at work and wondered as to their reaction to the fight that must take place, so shortly, in the sky above.  Presently the sound of the advancing enemy was audible, but still the harvesters work went on, until there roared overhead our intercepting squadron. _s one man the workers stood upright and still, doffed their caps – then carried on as the battle raged.

Yours ac.,

E.S. Oak-Rhind, Chairman, Civil Defence Committee, Kent.
