British aircraft attack French targets
Sunday, May 2, 1943 www.onwar.com
Over Occupied France... British Mosquito bombers raid the railway yards at Thionville in Lorraine.
Over Britain... German Dornier bombers lay mines off the estuaries of Thames and Humber.
In the Baltic... The German transport liner Gneisenau is sunk by a British mine laid by RAF aircraft.
Fascinating piece complaining about a "crazy Americans" bias in the British press.
I'd be pretty sure it's still there, though the traditional mainstays -- Red Indians, glamour girls and gangsters -- are doubtless by now replaced by more up-to-date characatures. ;-)
