Hello, all...

I have observed this category being empty for so long, and have been waiting for a chance to open it, so here goes... :D

I have read that Ju87s from 7./St.G 1 were used over the south of England in early 1941 on noctural operations. This unit was based in the Oostende area in Belgium, and some machines carried a legend on the cowling, two of which were Boulogne and Lee-on-Solent.

I have never heard of the Ju87 being used in that role at that time. Can anyone confirm, please, and/or supply photographs/pictures?

Many thanks in advance.

III./StG 1 was definitely based at Ostende until Feb41 but as to whether 7./StG 1 conducted any night ops against the UK I can't say.

Best Regards

Guys,

Griehl indicates, in Ju 87 Stuke (Airlife), that St.G.1 stopped operations against the South Coast of England on or about 13 Feb 1941 - however, he does not indicate if these operations were nocturnal.
