Air Ministry issues warning about paratroopers

The Air Ministry sends an "urgent" message to the Admiralty, the War Office and the Ministry of Home Defence.

According to information received from Norway, German paratroopers hold both hands above their head during a descent, just as if they were surrendering. However, in each hand they conceal a grenade which they throw at anyone who tries to oppose them when landing. In order to counter this trick, paratroopers numbering more than six should be regarded as hostile and shot in the air if at all possible.

Notably, six is the largest British bomber crew.
