By the last week of September 1940, high German losses brought an end to large-scale daylight raids on England and the Luftwaffe turned to night attacks by mid-October in what became known as the Blitz. This set includes a Heinkel He 111H-3 of 2 Staffel, KG 100, one of the Luftwaffe’s pathfinder units, based at Vannes-Meucon on the Biscay coast. This aircraft was engaged in the night blitz using Knickebein guidance. From mid September 1940 the He 111 was largely confined to nocturnal duties because of heavy attrition and so called ‘beam-bombing’ gave accuracy at night. With it are a Spitfire MkI, X4253, which flew with 611 Squadron from Rochford in Essex in December 1940, piloted by Pilot Officer Pegge and a Messerschmitt Me 109E of JG 51 piloted by Heinz Bar as a bomber escort, again in December 1940.
