26 days to go

Adding some more flavour to the build up of the 11th Aug start date. Here are some scans of the British coast taken by a Heinkel He-59 masquerading as a civilian air-sea rescue floatplane (Editors note – In reality they form part of a series of an aerial weather recce for the Queens Coronation Canberra flypast taken in 1953 by my Dad from the rear turret of his Lincoln bomber while serving with the RAF). Flying along the Kent and Sussex coast the Luftwaffe records potential landing sites, areas of population and targets for the air and land campaigns.
