A dramatically coloured night-time image of a British Wellington bomber flying low to drop its bomb load over a German industrial area with good transport links, challenging the dangers of the flames and searchlights.

The text at the base of this image: ‘Da die e de hoite os bombardeiros da R.A.F. atacam objectivos industrais e cabornate dos Nazis' roughly translates as ‘British bombers of the RAF attack industrial targets of the Nazis'.
