  • Description

    Full title reads: "Convoy Attacked In The Channel".

    Dover, Kent.

    VS of German aircraft attacking merchant ships as they steam along the channel just off Dover. All shot in long shot from the cliffs at Dover. Good shots of shells exploding around the ships and of shore base anti-aircraft guns firing at the German raiders.

    Shots of Spitfire planes taking off to engage the German dive bombers.

    N.B. Some of the shots of the planes appear to have been cut out.
