On the 14th August 1940 a lone He111 attacked the airfield at Sealand. Action Stations records:-

"on the evening of August 14th 1940 an He111 made a surprise attck on the airfield, dropping bombs on the barrack blocks and killing several airmen. There was no time to get the Masters airborne but the Spitfire Battle Flight at nearby Hawarden arrived on the scene and attacked the Heinkel. The bomber pilot crash landed the crippled a/c in a field and he and his crew set fire to the wreck before giving themselves up to the local Home Guard"

Does anyone have access to the Station ORB to see if this raid was written up in more detail please.

regards and thanks
