Luftwaffe photo-documents for WW2 air-raids on Britain

WW2 Luftwaffe bombers over Bristol

A 1940s German target identification photo-document for pilots to use in air-raids

To enable Luftwaffe bomber aircrew to identify their targets from the air during the raids on each town or city, their pilots were issued with an A4-size loose-leaf photo-document set containing a map and printed half-tone aerial photograph(s) of the specific area to be attacked.

These documents varied in size for individual towns or cities from single pages, printed both sides, to several pages of photographs. Each image was captioned to assist in navigation, positioning and target identification purposes and the crews were ordered ... "Zum Verbrauch! Mitnahme von Ausschnitten des Bildteiles zum Feindflug gestattet" (To be used! ... take these photographs with you on raids).
