Items are dropped onto the UK to suggest an imminent invasion

Overnight wireless transmitters, maps, explosives, instructions to agents, &c. are dropped in the English Midlands and Lowland Scotland to suggest an immanent invasion on the east coast. Later, General Schmid (head of Luftwaffe Intelligence) will testify that these objects were submitted to Göering in his train for approval and he mentioned several times that Hitler was pleased with Abwurf Action.

NBSS reports on parachutists

NBSS claims that the previous day's British scepticism suited Germany's purposes. The parachutists were being sheltered by Fifth Columnists. They also had with them detailed pictures of the Manchester Ship Canal, the Birmingham waterworks and others. These photos seem to have been taken from English illustrated papers before the war.

NBSS continues to build up the parachutists

They stress the accuracy of the maps, plans and lists of names they have brought with them. They claim three policemen have been shot dead in the search for them and cypher messages are being broadcast on the main German transmissions from Hamburg and elsewhere conveying instructions to the parachutists and their collaborators. Britain's "defences are being undermined from within".
