Picture 12--The Boeing factory was not underground. Still isn't. The camouflage was built on top of the factory.

Picture 13--Those are not German troops. The helmets give it away. They are British. Therefore, they are NOT shelling Dover.

#13 are British soldiers, so I doubt very much if they are aiming at Dover, unless they were really pissed off.
