    Default Raid on Borkum, 28/11/1939 Account

    Hi All,

    Does anyone know if there is a written account (in some book maybe) of the raid on the German seaplane base at Borkum on 28th November 1939 by Blenheims of 25 and 601 Squadrons? I can find very little by googling.

    Many thanks,

    Russ

    Hi Russ,

    have you read the accounts in the Times archive? If not they are on their way to your mailbox.
    It will be not exact historical account but at least something...

    Pavel,

    The online Dec. 7, 1939 issue of Flight magazine also has an account of the Borkum raid.

    See http://www.flightglobal.com/pdfarchive/view/1939/1939-1-%20-%201445.html?search=borkum

    There are some more pages describing the raid.

    Regards,

    Leendert
