Ramrod 831. The Wing, led by Major Christie, took off on Ramrod 831 from base at 0725 hours to act as Escort to 24 Bostons, detailed to bomb Cambrai marshalling yards. Rendez-vous was made over Beachy Head at 10,000 ft. and they crossed the French coast at 6 miles S.W. of Le Treport. The target was reached at 0830 hours and the bombers released their load from 10,000 ft. with fair to poor results. There was no enemy opposition what-to-ever, neither from ground nor air. The weather was clear with good visibility. The bombers crossed out 9 miles E. of Dunkerque and all our aircraft landed safely at 0950 hours.
