Witney: A Nazi Target

I recently undertook a research visit to the US National Archives in Washington DC. Whilst I was there I discovered this document – a target photograph of the airfield at Witney taken by the Luftwaffe in August 1940.

It’s certainly strange seeing somewhere so intensely familiar annotated and analysed by distant Nazi’s planning its potential destruction. Thank heavens they never properly put those plans into action.

  1. WOW brings it home when plans like that are on your doorstep

  2. Were the bastards targeting the Smiths factory complex?
