Scope and Content Aerial view of the Forth Railway Bridge, Fife and Lothian This oblique aerial photograph was taken from the south of the Forth Railway Bridge during World War II by the Royal Air Force. This bridge was a vital communication route to the north, and was a target for the first German air raid on Britain in World War II. It also shows a heavy anti-aircraft battery to the west of Dalmeny Station. Oblique air photographs were taken by the RAF No 1 CAM (camouflage) unit to check the effectiveness of camouflage on industrial structures such as coal mines, shipyards, electricity generating stations and engineering works when viewed from the air.
