Early this morning, a large force of 16 German Aviatik aeroplanes was spotted earier attempting to cross the Engligh Channel. However poor weather forced them to turn back.
This follows reports of a an Zeppelin and three Aviatiks over Calais overnight and a further two over Paris.
At around 11am 14 Aviatiks attacked Dunkirk – it is believed that these are the same aircraft spotted attempting to cross the channel. In the event, around 50 bombs were dropped on the town before the aircraft departed around 3.30pm, and at least 10 people are reported killed. This is the largest raid of the war so far.
