Saturday the 14th of September 1940

Day: There were probing raids on London, mainly by fighters, despite good weather. The build-up continues for 'Seelöwe', which is now postponed until the 17th of September 1940. Reconnaissance takes place in most areas followed by low-level probing raids by fighters and fighter-bombers. This unexpected intrusion increases the defenders' losses, and later several high-altitude raids cross the South coast as the weather begins to improve, diving to attack south London and other targets in the South East.

Night: London, Cardiff, Gloucester, Maidstone, Ipswich, Fareham and targets in Central Scotland are bombed

Losses: Luftwaffe 14: Fighter Command 13.

Weather: Cloudy, with showers and local thunder.
