Spitfire IX , BS395 (AH-M)
Rodeo 183. This Squadron was to act as second fighter echelon in this operation. With this Squadron on the bottom, the Belgian coast was crossed over Nieuport at 20,000 feet. The Wing then climbed to 28-31,000 feet during the sweep. In mid-channel on the way home, e/a were reported in Northern France, and a wide orbit was made to get up sun – slightly recrossing the French coast. As nothing was seen, course was set for base where the Squadron landed without any further incident.
