Return to the Bump/Biggin Hill, Summer 1940 by Gil Cohen

Return to the Bump/Biggin Hill, Summer 1940
by
Gil Cohen

Flight Lieutenant Pete Brothers is greeted by his bull terrier “Merlin” on returning to RAF Biggin Hill. He is being questioned by the intelligence officer about the intense air battle that has just taken place high over Southern England. The ground crew are diligently working to prepare the Hurricanes of 32 Squadron for the next sortie, which will take place later that day. Pete's 1928 Bentley sits at dispersal with a sign in the windscreen Air Defence Priority which Wing Commander Crossley Officer Commanding 32 Squadron had all the pilots display in their cars so they would not be held up in road blocks that surrounded Biggin Hill, should the urgent call come through to get to the Airfield immediately to scramble. The local defence were informed of their priority and were waved through.

Signed by: Three Pilots of 32 Squadron who fought in the Battle of Britain

We Guide to Strike by Gil cohen

We Guide to Strike
by
Gil Cohen

Flying ahead of the main bomber stream, a Lancaster of 156 Squadron Pathfinder Force makes a run over its target in the heavily defended industrial Ruhr Valley. Extreme concentration can be observed in the crews eyes as they focus on their critical task of  marking the target.  The Ruhr, the greatest industrial area in the whole of Germany, was the most heavily defended target in the world. The Ruhr Valley was nearly always covered by an almost permanent smoke-haze which, at night made visual pin-pointing of towns below nearly  impossible. The Pathfinder force was able to penetrate the industrial pollution with aircraft equipped with the blind-bombing devise known as Oboe.  This technology afforded the ability to seek out targets  regardless of weather conditions and illuminate desired areas with brilliant target markers which reflected back up from the ground through the haze.  The application of the crews precise identification of the target locations will enable the following bomber strikes to be incisively accurate further crippling the German war  effort.
