Spitfire IX , BS458 (KB)
Ramrod 248. The Wing, acting as withdrawal cover to Fortresses bombing targets in the Paris area, arrived over Beauvais on time then sighted four boxes of Fortresses coming from S.E. at 23/26,000 feet. The Wing escorted the Fortresses back to Hastings, crossing out over Berck. No e/a were sighted. Medium heavy flak seen in the Beauvais - Amiens area.
ORB indicates aircraft as BS548, but this is likely be an error as BS458 was 132 W/C mount during this period.
