Rare, large, partially typed document, 1p. 16 1/2" x 13 1/2 and clearly generated by the R.A.F., being a daily report for Jan. 21, 1945 on the effects of German bombing attacks on London and British counter-measures. The report indicates that 98 German aircraft attacked, with 13 destroyed, seven over land. Seven of the downed planes are identified as to their crash sites, cause of crash (AA or fighter action), altitude at which bombing was to take place, and intelligence officers so attached. Beneath appears a handwritten analysis of bombing attacks on London for the night of Jan. 21-22 indicating the numbers of bombs of various weights dropped on the city, the types, and total tonnage. The report, stamped "SECRET", is annotated: "Save for Lt. Abdelmour". Folds, else fine.
