Original Wartime bombing raid photographs for U-Boat pens at La Pallice, France.
These two original photographs were taken during the RAF daylight operational raid, on the U-Boat pens by 9 and 617 squadrons, 18th August 1944. Each photograph clearly shows where the aircraft's bomb load hitting the target. The first photo is for F/O Jones crew, the second for F/O Scott crew. Their bomb loads were of 6 x 2000lb bombs.
Each photo is of 140 x 140mm in size and printed on Air Ministry stamped photographic paper. These images are very clear and can be viewed even more closely under a stereoscopic viewer.
Most surviving Bomber Command target photos were taken at night, so to find clear daylight ones is rare.
