• Short Summary

    Air battle against Germany continues after German bombing of 'selected targets' in London.

  • Description

    Full title reads: "SELECTED TARGETS".


    Various shots of the B 17 bombers at flight over Wilhelmshaven, Germany. Bombing, burning targets and plenty of flak is put up. Various shots of the air combat film of German fighters being shot down - poor quality material. Ground to air shots of formation of Flying Fortresses returning to base. Damage to one of the planes is seen.

    Poor quality medium shot of Thunderbolt landing - it tips up on nose. Not very much damage.

    Various morning after shots of a German bombing raid on suburb in London. People digging through debris. These mainly civilian areas German media call 'selected targets'.

    Various shots of the parade at British airfield of USA Air Force and Royal Air Force personnel. They march past with American General Eaker. Air Chief Marshal Harris takes a salute. Various shots of the lowest ranking American airman handing over the airfield to its new occupants (natural sound). A low ranking RAF airman receives the airfield.

    Air Chief Marshal Harris talking into microphone (natural sound). He tells of the raids on important targets in Germany and says "we must keep on and not sit back with a false sense of security because we are getting the better of the enemy."
