|Day: Small raiding groups form to try bombing from
above the weather and at very low levels. Interceptions were difficult,
Central London was bombed including Buckingham Palace, but the He
111 did not get away. He was shot down by a Sgt
Ginger Lacey in a Hurricane
from No 501 Squadron. Also various
targets were bombed in Kent.
Night: Night attacks were centred
on London with diversionary raids restricted chiefly to the Home Counties
and East Anglia.
Losses: Luftwaffe 4: Fighter Command 3
Weather: Continuing unsettled; heavy showers, with some bright intervals inland. Weather now severely hampering enemy operations.
