|Day: A convoy was attacked off Swanage and destroyers
sunk off Dover and Suffolk and also a raid on Belfast.
Attacks on convoys off the Thames estuary, Harwich and (the heaviest) off
Portland. The very heavy attacks on Dover in which Bf
109's were used for the first time in fighter-bomber role. Plymouth
and Wick in Scotland and Belfast in Northern Ireland also attacked.
Losses cause Admiralty to withdraw anti-invasion warships from Dover to Sheerness and Harwich, placing the onus of convoy protection even more heavily upon Fighter Command.
Night: Night raids were restricted to the South West, with minelaying off the South West and East coast.
Losses: Luftwaffe 4: Fighter Command 2.
Weather: Fair and fine at first, with thunderstorms later.
