Notes
Content: Picture caption: "Die deutsche Luftwaffe unternahm in diesen Tagen den erfolgreichsten Angriff auf den britischen Kriegshafen Scapa Flow. Churchill wollte leugnen, aber es waren doch sechs große englische Kriegsschiffe, drei Flugplätze und die Flakbatterien, die deutsche Bomber schwer zu kosten bekamen."
Content: These are Heinkel He-111 bombers. The bombardier sat in the glass-enclosed nose and operated a machine gun (not installed here) mounted in the rotating bubble at the front.
