According to the Air Ministry all planes returned safe. Its communique indicated strong belief that the Admiral Hipper, sister ship of the Bluecher which Norwegian shore batteries sank at the outset of the German invasion of Norway, must have been hit by the bombs. Royal Air Force planes took off only a few hours after Hitler had made his speech to raid Brest for the 41st time since the Germans established themselves there and the fourth time in as many nights. One of Heaviest Raids Aviation quarters reported that the raid was one of the heaviest and most Concentrated of the war. Brest, at the southern end of the invasion coast, Is at the tip of France's Brittany peninsula which juts out Into the sea 140 miles south of Plymouth to separate the English Channel and the Bay of Biscay. Germany is reported to be making increasing use of it as a base and concentration point for submarines which are to operate In the Spring campaign. Well-Informed quarters asserted that Britain had been preparing for months for German submarine warfare on an unprecedented scale and was ready for it. Blasted for 2 Houn The attack on Brest started at 8 o'clock and continued for two hours, the Air Ministry said. "A very heavy load of the most powerful bombs used for targets of this kind was dropped on docks where a Hipper class cruiser was berthed." It added.
