Details

At 1510 hours, 12 aircraft of this Squadron took off from North Weald on a Rodeo operation in the Flushing-Ostende area together with 331(N) Squadron. W/Cdr. P.G. Jamieson D.F.C. was leading the Wing. The English coast was crossed over Bradwell and course was set or Ostende flying at sea level. When 7 minutes off the Belgian coast, one flight of 331(N) Squadron, climbed to 2,000 feet whilst the other flight of 331(N) Squadron joined this Squadron as pre-arranged. The Wing turned to port along the Belgian coast, and proceeded North. When off Schouwen, the Wing turned to starboard and followed the coast down to Blankenberghe, where separate 331 flight came down and joined the main formation, still flying at sea level. Course was then set for base, recrossing the English coast near Manston. No flak experienced and no e/a seen. The squadron had landed by 1705 hours.
