Aircraft of Bomber Command







Eight squadrons of Hampdens were operational at the beginning of the war and were in action immediately, raiding enemy naval installations and ships until the daylight formations encountered enemy fighters. Casualties became so heavy the Hampden was taken off operations, re-equipped with better armour and armament, and then used only at night.
