SUNDAY 25th JULY 2010 11:30(BST)

THIS DAY IN WW2 (25.7.40)
From Washington... The United States prohibits the export of oil and metal products in certain categories, unless under license, to countries outside the Americas generally and to Britain. This move is seen as an anti-Japanese measure, particularly because of Japan's needs for foreign oil. From this time Japanese fuel stocks begin to decline. There are similar problems with other raw materials. Japanese attention is, therefore, drawn south from China to the resources of the Netherlands East Indies and Malaysia.

In the Dover Straits... Aircraft from Kesselring's Luftflotte 2 attack a convoy in the Dover Straits very fiercely. They have help from German light naval forces. These are driven off during the day but return to do damage during the night. The British lose 11 of 21 ships in the convoy.
