aerial photographs of Glasgow during the war

Postby olderbutnotwiser » Fri Apr 20, 2012 1:08 pm

I'm not sure if there are many pictures of aerial photography by German pilots , of the Glasgow area ,
but I have some scanned that I could upload .
Haven't just went ahead with it , as it may have been done before.

I have 5 pictures in total, with 3 of them from 3rd October 1939. This seemed very early into the war
to be flying over Britain, but I know little of such things.

There is an old thread somewhere on HG about aerial photos of Glasgow , but they would probably be best posted in the "bombs over Glasgow" thread.

I'd be very interested in seeing your pictures.

(edit) Although there are some Luftwaffe photos on that thread already, try p12 and compare with yours?
Glasgow ya bas!

Thanks Tom, I think I need to create a Flickr account or something 1st.

When/if I succeed in doing this, I'll post them in the thread you suggested ( bombs over Glasgow ).

I have a nice aerial German photo of Drumchapel and Clydebank dated 2 Oct 1939. However I was told it was taken in probably late July or August by a commercial German airline flight. Drumchapel at Jedworth Avenue has a "Flak" battery
note added to the photo. That appears to be the only defence identified for the Clydebank area.

The photo does not cover Duntocher. There was a "Z" rocket battery at Clydebank & District Golf Club.But that was well after 1939.The Drumchapel battery was under construction in 1939 and had telegraph poles to look like guns in late 1939 as the ack ack guns were still being made.
