Notes
Content: Picture caption: "Das ist das Ergebnis solcher Besprechungen. In rollendem Einsatz stösst die deutsche Luftwaffe Tag für Tag und Nacht für Nacht gegen England. Angeblich hat Churchill mit seiner Luftabwehr eine undurchdringliche Sperre um London gelegt, in Wirklichkeit setzen die deutschen Flieger trotz Flakfeuer unbeirrt ihren Feindflug fort."
Content: The caption refers back to a previous photo showing a conference between Hitler and Mussolini. The anti-aircraft fire is the group of smoke puffs at center. Air defense guns did damage German bombers, but the real threat to them came from British fighters such as Hurricanes and Spitfires.
