Re: Posting to the Allied Discussion form on British forces present at the Battle of The Heligoland Bay: 18 December 1939

Larry did not want to revive a heated discussion, but my comment to the routing described is YGABSM, please see the picture attached. The target is Wilhelmshaven, they fly past the target in close proximity, perform a totally, uncalled for deep inland penetration and the attack the target from the SSE, and that without being detected by a single FLUKO and reported by Lg XI.
According to a most authoritative published German account the formation was first detected by radar at 1300 local time and fighters were scrambled at 1320.
