Spitfire IX , BS458 (KB)
Ramrod S.6. The Wing was acting as Target Cover in part II of this operation. This Squadron, led by Major K. Birksted, D.F.C., took off from North Weald followed by 331(N)Squadron. The operation went as planned - the Wing arrived over the Target at 0825 hours. No e/a were seen and the Wing returned to base without incident. Slight inaccurate flak over the target. Bombing results were not seen.
ORB indicates aircraft as BS548, but this is likely be an error as BS458 was 132 W/C mount during this period.
