WW2 Luftwaffe bombers over Southend-on-Sea [and Shoeburyness]

A 1940s WW2 German target identification bombing photo-document set In the early 1940s, the German Luftwaffe planned a bombing campaign against British towns and cities, including Southend-on-Sea and Shoeburyness.

To help Luftwaffe bomber aircrew identify their targets from the air during the raids on each town or city, the pilots and bomb-aimers were issued with an A4-size loose-leaf photo-document set containing a map and printed half-tone aerial photograph(s) of the general area to be attacked.

This original WW2 Luftwaffe set for air-raids on Southend-on-Sea and Shoeburyness, found on a wartime Luftwaffe base, consists of:

2 sheets, 11 x 8 inches (30 cms x 21 cms), printed both sides. 4 pages of Luftwaffe map and photographs. 1 map, targets or other features marked in red. 3 full-page aerial photographs, captioned in German.
