Just as I shot Willie’s pal down, another Me nailed me from behind. He got me right in the belly of the Spit. A chunk of cannon shell smashed into my right heel. Another went between my left arm and body, nicking me in the elbow and ribs.

Luftwaffe attack against London 07/09/1940

7 September 1940 – First purposeful Luftwaffe attack against London

The Battle of Britain entered a new phase on 7th September 1940, with the Luftwaffe attacking London purposefully for the first time. The change of tactics from the Luftwaffe’s Commander-in-Chief, Hermann Göring, was the latest part of a series of retaliatory exchanges between the RAF and the Luftwaffe, in which London had first been bombed accidently, then Berlin had been attacked. The change was to prove decisive and would lead to the Luftwaffe’s defeat in the Battle of Britain.

For most of the morning and afternoon of the 7th September, Fighter Command were troubled by nothing more than a few enemy reconnaissance aircraft and a small fighter sweep across the south-east, which was left well alone in accordance with Air Vice-Marshal Park’s orders. The real action did not start until after 16.00, when several large forces of German aircraft were detected by radar, heading across the English Channel in a widely spread arc from Belgium to Cherbourg. Fighter Command No.11 Group scrambled nine squadrons to patrol above airfields and factories, assuming that these would be the targets as usual. Once the enemy formations crossed the British coastline though, all turned towards London. Realising what was happening, No.11 Group scrambled another nine squadrons and called for reinforcement from No.12 Group’s “Big Wing”  ....  7th September 72 years ago  :  DDxx♥!.

Target London 7th September 1940

Target London 7th September 1940 | History Around the Net | Scoop.it

Most historians agree that the very nature of the Battle of Britain changed on 7 September, with a shift away from the direct attack on Fighter Command's airfields and the factories which produced its aircraft. The change in targeting was driven by Goring and supported by Kesselring, who felt that the anti-airfield campaign had run its course, and that Fighter Command was finished. But Sperrle protested strongly, believing that Fighter Command probably still had a thousand aircraft left, and wished to continue to scourge the No.11 Group airfields. He was overruled.
