|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.
