    Default Raid on Kiel on 19/20-8-1941

    Gents
    On the night of 19/20-8-1941 Bomber Command sent 108 aircrafts towards Kiel. Not very succesful due to weather, as only 67 claimed to have bombed target area.
    Can anyone tell me the route that the aircrafts were supposed to follow towards the target and back to UK ?
    I can see from the German War Diary that 10-15 aircrafts approached the Esbjerg area on the Danish West coast from west between 23:54 and 02:15 and later flew from east towards west thru the same area. My best guess is that the rest of the fleet approached Germany via the German west coast or Southern Jutland (Denmark). And returned the same way. But I do not know.
    Thank you in advance.
