The third is a print of the expected H2S return of the target. Fourth is a collection of newspaper cuttings describing the first 1,000 bomber operation carried out during daylight. Fifth is a cutting, two photographs shows the damage to Caen after a series of raids on D Day. This shows the utter devastation to the city caused by these attacks.
The sixth is of a pair of photographs captioned 'Tactical bombing in support of the Army' that reports the tactical bombing that was undertaken a few days after the heavy bomber operation to on Caen.
