Details

Circus 270. 11 aircraft of this Squadron, led by Major W.Mohr D.F.C., took off from North Weald together with 311(N) Squadron acting as first fighter echelon in connection with Circus 270 operation. W/Cdr. P.G. Jameson D.F.C., flying with 331(N) Squadron was leading the Wing. The Wing was going to be under Appledore Control. The Wing crossed the English coast at N.Foreland and started climbing, reaching the French coast at 18-19,000 feet - 332(N) Squadron above 331(N) Squadron. A layer of cloud - 10/10ths at 6-8,000 feet over channel and Northern France made it impossible to see the ground. The Wing clombed to 22,000 feet in the St. Omer area, and was then recalled. No e/a were seen and no flak experienced.
