On the 15th September 1940 more than 1,000 enemy aircraft carried out a day and night attack on London – it was a day of very heavy fighting and later became commemorated as Battle of Britain day. The RAF announced that they had shot down 175 enemy aircraft – the figure was wildly inaccurate – the real number that the Germans had lost was closer to 56 – but the inflated numbers were accepted at the time as both sides fought a propaganda battle as well as a military war. The Spitfire summer was nearing its end.
