            August 1940. Deutsche Wochenschau. Bomben auf Engelland

            Translation.
            An airfield during rest period. A reconnaissance aircraft returns from a mission. The on-board camera has taken photographs of the enemy positions. The film is developed and set to dry. The photographs are immediately scrutinised. They serve as the basis for attack by an attack squadron. They head off against England once more. An automatic film camera is to the right of the pilot.

            Wir fliegen zur Weichsel und Warthe
            Wir fliegen ins polnische Land
            Wir trafen es schwer
            Das feindliche Heer
            Mit Blitzen und Bomben und Brand

            Kamerad! Kamerad!
            Alle Mädels müssen warten!
            Kamerad! Kamerad!
            Der Befehl ist da, wir starten!
            Kamerad! Kamerad!
            Die Losung ist bekannt:
            Ran an den Feind!
            Ran an den Feind!
            Bomben auf Engelland!

            Wir stellen den britischen Löwen
            Zum letzten entscheidenden Schlag.
            Wir halten Gericht.
            Ein Weltreich zerbricht.
            Das wird unser stolzester Tag!

                        It is always more difficult to fight against faith than against knowledge.

                        Never go to war with a country whose national holiday celebrates a defeat in 1389.
