10 October 1940
Around 15h45, three Caproni Ca.133 from 31bis Gruppo BT attack the Wajir airfield. They are followed, five minutes later, by three other aircraft of the same type on the Lodwar airfield. In both cases, the bombardment does not seem to give significant results. The South African archives mention the injury of a native and the destruction of three huts in Lodwar.
However, these two attacks show defects of a totally obsolete air detection system, limited to a few soldiers perched in vague watchtowers or trees. Captain Servaas van Breda Theron of No.2 (SAAF) Squadron is then charged with an officer of the Gold Coast Regiment to think about a new system, without convincing results for lack of means.
