German fighter planes, flashing across the English channel with single bombs, Wednesday night were reported to have bombed the British Vickers-Armstrong airplane factory at Chester and a munitions plant at Swansea.
The British, censoring names of towns, admitted two waves of German planes had raided a southwest England town and that portions of Wales also had been under attack.
Meanwhile British planes were reported to have bombed the great Le Bourget airdrome at Paris and to have blasted oil plants, supply bases and factories in Germany and Holland. The attack on Le Bourget was the first British raid of the war in the Paris region.
Britain claimed bombing of German industrial areas have seriously interfered with production for the nazi war machine and predicted tnat rebellion may occur in German-conquered territory.
On the other hand the German high command asserted its attacks by air and sea were part of a consistent campaign to blast vital British productive points in a "wearing down" process designed to break Britain's resistance for a knockout blow.
