At Least Eleven Enemy Aircraft were Shot Down

A report featured in the Bromley & District Times newspaper in July 1940.

More daylight air raids have been made in various parts of Britain, with casualties to civilians.  But raiders have been shot down daily.

At least eleven enemy aircraft were shot down during a series of attacks on Wednesday on our coasts. In one battle it was estimated that over 100 aircraft were engaged.

The R.A.F. have continued their attacks on military objectives in Germany with conspicuous success, and during the week have wrecked German barges which were concentrated on Dutch canals. Kiel and Wilhelmshaven have been raided again, and the Sola aerodrome at Stavanger has also been bombed.
