A salvo of bombs from Martin Baltimores of No. 21 Squadron SAAF explodes on enemy transport on the road between el Daba and Fuka, Egypt, at the start of the enemy's withdrawal from the Battle of El Alamein. 465 Allied aircraft attacked the slow-moving columns retreating westwards along the coast road in the afternoon of 3 November 1942, destroying an estimated 300 vehicles.
