19:36 German night fighter controllers react

19:36  The German night fighter controllers were expecting a raid on Berlin and their first reaction to the British bombers came from the 3 JD controller by directing a handful of Aufklärer (reconnaissance aircraft) of NJG 1,2 and 3 to a position over the North Sea, north of Den Helder and Wilhelmshaven. These were the first of a maximum effort of 243 Nachtjäger of the I. Jagdkorps that were sent into action during the course of the night.
