This is from a collection of RAF aerial photographs of strategic bombings and raids through German-occupied Europe from March-July 1944, during or directly following the Allied invasion of northern France and German retreat.

The photographs were gathered and collected by Canadian military photographer Michael Resin.

This particular aerial photograph shows the Allied (RAF) bombing of a French commune labeled "L'Hey", which there was found to be a German weapons bunker. Presumably, the commune is correctly labeled L'Haye-du-Puits, as the Allied liberation of L'Haye-du-Puits and nearby Montgardon were liberated a few days before the bombing in the photograph occurred.

This specific photograph shows the Aerial bombing (RAF) of Soesterberg air base in the Netherlands. During Germany's blitzkrieg in 1940, the Netherlands was overrun in five days, and Soesterberg air base occupied by the German Luftwaffe in May 1940.
