Heavy RAF losses in attack on Wehrmacht barracks

A post raid reconnaissance  photograph of the German barracks at mainly Le Camp.

During the bombing run, with the bomb aimer directing the pilot, there was a sudden huge bang and a blinding pink/red flash along the port side of the aircraft, followed immediately by the pilot saying (not shouting), “Christ put on chutes chaps’. Within a second of this the plane was hit again by flak along the fuselage.
