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

Hello SES
what you described was the early method during night attacks, in daytime the planes flew in close formations for mutual support, the formation keeping was taken very seriously. The formation flew around Helgoland, turned south flew past Bremen, turned west, then north past Wilhelmshaven, then NNW, then part of the formation turned west flying a bit north of Frisian Islands, this formation was intercepted at 1435 MET, the formation which continued NNW was intercepted at 1430 MET. That according to the map inShores' Fledgling Eagles.
