In the first few weeks the main targets were RAF bases in the south of England, coastal shipping and some naval bases. On 7 September 1940 the Luftwaffe,using 300 bombers protected by about 600 fighters, deliberately targeted the London docks and nearby residential areas. The Luftwaffe continued to bomb RAF bases but the main target became the civilian population. The damage to people and property indenselybuilt up areas was very serious. Joncey
