Re: Attack on RAF Chedburgh

From TNA HW 13/37:
German naval authorities based on the Dutch Coast advised units under their command that 4 aircraft of unspecified type would cross the coast in the HOOK area at 140 - 2000, returning 2115 - 2130 South of the HAGUE.

1 aircraft dropped bombs near BURY ST. EDMUNDS shortly after dusk and was shot down. This was the only machine to cross the coast of this country. A single aircraft of III KG 6 was heard in W/T at 2206-2219, but was fixed in 05 E. 6255 and had probably notcrossed the enemy coast.
Times are British Summer Time.

Peter Taghon’s KG 6 history says that four Ju 88 S-1 of II./KG 6 set out for London, two turned back early while one from the 7. Staffel was hit by a fighter. Two of the crew bailed out but the pilot regained control and brought the machine home.
