Daylight Air Battles: Ten Enemy Machines Down in One Fight

Continuing their nightly raids on this country, German raiders have again dropped bombs on towns and villages in South-East England.

Residential areas, far from military objectives, have suffered badly, many houses and cottages bring wrecked.

The bombers have brought tragedy to several homes in the area, but it is remarkable how few fatal casualties there have been in view of the extent of the material damage.

In daylight raids R.A.F. fighters have again proved their superiority.  On one occasion no fewer than ten German planes were brought down between Chislehurst and Orpington.
