Major W.Mohr D.F.C. led 12 aircraft from this Squadron on a Air Sea Rescue patrol in search of Capt. Sem of 331(N) Squadron, missing from operations on 12-12-42. The Squadron made one large orbit to starboard crossing the English coast East of Dungeness and recrossing near Beachy Head. Then a smaller orbit was made crossing and recrossing the coast in approx. the same points. Nothing was seen during these two orbits, which were made at sea level. The squadron then climbed and set course to Cap Gris Nez reaching 14-16,000 feet and when a few miles off the French coast the Squadron turned to port and set course for base. There was nothing to report from this patrol.
