Diary September 20, 1939
WW2 War Diary for Wednesday, September 20, 1939:
A Fairey Battle just landed. The Battle will forever be remembered as a combat aircraft which was being hacked out of the sky in droves so that everybody think of the name with a shudder.
Western Front: RAF’s first clash with Luftwaffe. Me 109 s attack 3 Battle recce-bombers over Siegfried Line. One Messerschmitt fighter and 2 Battles shot down.
Germany: US newspapers publish details of private fortunes (£ 7 millions = $ 33 millions) deposited by Nazi leaders in foreign banks.
