Here is the news at nine o'clock

The south of England again came under heavy enemy attack today, however no damage was inflicted to industry or the civilian population.

Early Air Ministry reports state that 19 enemy bombers were shot down in the raid before reaching their targets, with no. 19 Squadron alone accounting for no less than four confirmed bombers destroyed over the channel without loss.

Here is the news at eleven o'clock

There were continued attacks this evening by German Raiders, however they were again met by strong Anglo-French resistance and were stopped short of their targets, early reports state that the majority of enemy bombers were shot down over the channel for only minor losses despite very strong fighter cover, most of our Pilots were saved.


"I look forward confidently to the exploits of our Fighter Pilots - these splendid men, this brilliant youth, who will have the glory of saving their native land, their island home, and all they love, from the most deadly of all attacks."

- Winston Churchill
