Details

Circus 217. Wingco leading 332 Squadron for diversionary sweep. Rendezvous was made with 121 Squadron at Bradwall, and at Clacton with the Debden wing at 0930 hrs. Course was set for Ostend. They were on 22.000 feet over the Dutch and saw about 10 F.W.'s far below then going N.E., so they turned right and set course for base. The F.W.'s must have seen them too for they also turned inland and started to climb and come after us, which was just what was wanted in order to let the bombers be free of interference. All landed safely at 1040 hrs.
