September 4 - The beginning of Air Raids over Germany

On the previous day, reconnaissance flights had already taken place over German territory.

But on the 4th of September 12 airplanes (2 Vickers Wellington and 10 Bristol Blenheim) drop their bombs over Wilhelmshaven and Brunsbuttel naval bases, despite heavy anti-aircraft fire and poor weather. No major damages are reported.

Though no serious bombing takes place in the first months of war, the British will fly a large number of missions and most of them have the objective of launch millions of leaflets explaining the risks for the German people in going to war against the Allies. The success of these measures is highly dubious.
