Content: Picture caption: "Wieder bombardierten britische Nachtpiraten Wohn- und Krankenhäuser. Unser Bild zeigt Zerstörungen durch englische Bomben an der Universitätsklinik von Münster. Das riesige Rote Kreuz auf dem Dach schützt nicht vor britischem Verbrechertum."
Content: British bomber raids in the early months of the war had trouble finding their targets after flying across the North Sea to Germany, let alone hitting them exactly.
