3 blows at fly-bomb bases

DEFENSIVE measures against pilotless planes have had further successes.

In the past 24 hours, said the Air Ministry last night, flying bombs have been brought down by A.D.G.B. fighters and by the ground defences.

The robot installations in Northern France were attacked twice yesterday, first by U.S. Fortresses and Liberators, then in the afternoon by Lancasters of Bomber Command.

Small forces of Liberators also bombed the installations, among other targets, on Saturday afternoon, when eight German fighters were shot down for a loss of a bomber and two fighters.

Both the U.S. attacks were made through cloud.
