Spitfire IX , BS398 (AH-N)
Captain Thorsager F. led this Squadron on a sweep in the Nieuport-Calais area together with 331(N) Squadron. Rendezvous was made over Bradwell with 124 Squadron (Spitfire VI) at 1340 hours. Three of our aircraft were forced to return before crossing the English coast owing to petrol trouble. The Wing climbed to between 24-25,000 feet, 332 Squadron being on top, and crossed the Belgian coast near Nieuport. The Wing then turned S.W. and swept some miles inland along the coast to Calais, where course was set for the English coast. Enemy aircraft were reported in the Dunkirk area and some of these were seen by our pilots at 17,000 feet between 7-9 o'clock, but too far away to attack. No flak was experienced. Weather over France:- Fair with scattered cloud.
