A flight of three No 21 Squadron Blenheims, 16 July 1941

(Rus)  A flight of three No 21 Squadron Blenheims dashes over the Dutch countryside on the approach to Rotterdam docks, 16 July 1941. The squadron was lucky to have no losses that day, but the fortunes of war were such that the nearest aircraft, V5595/ YH:P, with Flt Sgt Kemp's crew, was lost on its next operation, a shipping strike, two days later.
