On July 4, 1941, RAF Wing Commander Hughie Idwal Edwards led a daylight attack on the port of Bremen, one of the most heavily defended towns in Germany. Flying overland, sometimes at a height of only 50 feet, Edwards and his formation of Bristol Blenheims flew through telegraph wires and under power cables before passing through a dense balloon barrage. Further fire at Bremen itself saw all twelve of his aircraft being hit and four of them destroyed. The attack was successful and the remaining aircraft were brought home safely. For his role in this remarkable attack Edwards was awarded the Victoria Cross.
