A Heinkel He 111 bomber over Wapping print

A German Heinkel HE 11 Bomber over Wapping in East London on 7 September 1940 during the Luftwaffe’s first deliberate attack on the capital.

During this first attack the docks and East London were set ablaze, 436 Londoners killed and another 1,600 were badly injured. Many raids were to follow, mostly by night but the Blitz on London was ultimately unsuccessful and served only to strengthen British resistance.
