Are these He 111Es?

Hi all

With apologies for my ignorance, I am trying to work out if these aircraft from 8./KG 355 around October 1938 are indeed E types, as I had assumed. Having checked my references I am still struggling to tell my early mark He 111s apart!

Thanks for any help.

The engines look like Jumo 211 A1 engines, so it is likely that these were He 111 E, possibly E-1.

I'm pretty sure they're Jumo 211A-3 engines, making it a He-111F.
See the small flap at the rear of the radiator, and the bump on top of the cowling immediately behind the spinner. See attached from Squadron-Signal He-111 reference.
Cheers
Peter
