Luftwaffe Stadtplan

Marked for Destruction…

Have you noticed the evil names the Germans give to their planes – like Dornier, Heinkel and Stuka.
They have evil shapes, long thin and pointed like snakes and dragons. British planes however, look like faithful dogs with friendly names like Hurricane and Wellington.

Luftwaffe Stadtplan of North and South Shields showing military targets. Note that the two local hospitals are clearly marked in red on the map. Did the Luftwaffe plan to bomb them?

Although based on an Ordnance Survey 6″: 1 mile, it is slightly enlarged to a scale of 1:10,000. The Germans would have been able to buy OS maps without any problems in the years before 1939.
