The Belfast Blitz: Aftermath of the Docks Raid

On 8th April 1941, the Ministry of Public Security and the Headquarters of the R.A.F. in Northern Ireland issued a joint statement regarding the Docks Raid.

A small force of enemy bombers, one of which was shot down over the sea by our night fighters and blew up in mid-air, attacked an area in Northern Ireland and caused some damage to industrial, commercial, and other property. Some casualties were unfortunately caused. Further details will be issued later in the day.
