43 In January 1943, furthermore, came the ﬁrst use of new target indicators (TIs); the attack on Berlin on the 16/17th saw a ground marker triggered by barometric pressure to disintegrate in the air in a cascade of 60 coloured pyrotechnic candles, while that on Du¨sseldorf on the 31st featured sky markers on parachutes. These were released over the target using OBOE or H2S, and though they did drift with the wind they allowed relatively more accurate bombing than hitherto when cloud or mist prevented a clear view of the ground.
