Title

Valenciennes, Edward King's 16th operation of his tour.

Description

Five items, Edward's brief description of the operation their bomb aimer was sick so took replacement, quiet trip. Edward's navigation plot, and an indication of the H2S plot when over the target. There are two press clippings, the first has a caption 'The result of A.E.A.F. attacks on the railway centre at Valenciennes'. This refers to the Allied tactical air forces damage to railway engine shed. The upper part of the photograph clearly shows the two large turntables, the round house where the locomotives are housed between trips and the storage tracks occupied by waggons, all badly damaged. Across the centre of the photograph is a canal with a collapsed bridge, below that are large factories again showing signs of bomb damage.
A second cutting shows Munich, no caption, signs of some bomb damage.
