Details

Circus 221. 12 a/c too off 1325 hrs. for diversionary sweep in Circus 221. 332 Squadron were with us led by Wingco. Rendezvous was made at Orfordness and course set at 1405 hrs. The Belgian coast was crossed between Nieuport and Ostend. They then flew dovn over Dixminde, Poperinghe, Ypres, thence to Cassel, when about 15 e/a were sighted at same level and below. Some scattered combats took place and Captain Berg was able to get in a good attack on a F.W. 190 which is claimed as probably destroyed. Sgt. Cleve and Sgt. Sörensen are missing from this operation. It is believe possible that Sgt. Sörensen may yet be safe as he reported that the engine was smoking, but that he was alright himself. Nothing definite is known about Sgt. Cleve.
