11th July 1940
151 squadron took off from Gravesend airfield, I flew as Green 3, got into formation and began climbing to Angels 15. At some point over northern Kent Red 2 spotted bandits, Red Leader ordered a defensive split high and we ran straight into a flight of 109s. A chaotic furball ensued, I lost Green Leader, caught up to him again over Margate just in time to lose him on the R/T, redirected to Red Leader, only to have him go off the channel as well.
Found some 109s escorting a returning bomber formation, the 109s seemed rather docile, so put some lead into one, he broke away for France, I followed and pecked at him but he refused to go down. Gave up the chase when the cliffs of France showed up in my windscreen and RTB'd to Hawkinge to find I was the only pilot to bring their Hurri back. 8 pilots of the squadron lost, including the CO, and 11 Hurricanes destroyed.
151 Squadron was redeployed to 13 Group that afternoon to rebuild.

What a massacre. :dead:
Following a Hurri following a 109 following a Hurri...
The 109 I pecked at.
Landed back at Hawkinge which appears to have been the victim of some Stukas...

15th July 1940

Transferred out of 151 squadron back down into the fray at West Malling with 43 Squadron. Still flying Hurris though. Promoted to Green Leader.
Took off at approx 8am, heading to protect Convoy ABLE off the coast of Hastings, spotted some distant contacts, called them to Red Leader but he couldn't see them, turned to get a clearer view but Red Leader called me back into the formation. Just as I was rejoining a furball erupted to our three o clock, called it out to Red Leader and he must have had his glasses on as he spotted it too.
Dove into the fray, found 110s! Not sure what was going on but don't recall seeing any of their rear gunners firing, bagged one and I'm sure I got another but someone else must have claimed it.
Lost the squadron in the process but dialed up Red Leader who seemed to be intent on pursuing the Luftwaffe back to France, was lead on a merry dance around the Channel trying to rendezvous when he decided to RTB. So RTB'd myself as the rest of the squadron started reporting low fuel, landed safely. We lost four men, but claimed 24 110s and 29 Stukas (split between four squadrons that were in the furball).

Dogfight! 3 o clock!

Now...time to see about adjusting some settings so that the AI doesn't take us all off to France again next time... :nope:

:salute: Tally Ho!

16th July 1940
Spent day at 5mins readiness, no convoys through the eastern Channel so Jerry took the day off, sending only a token raid at the Western approaches.
Some new Hurricanes arrived to replace our losses from yesterday.

17th July 1940
Another quiet day, some scuffles off the Anglian coast but nothing in our area.

18th July 1940
Another dull day, weather dull too.

19th July 1940
7:30am take off to patrol convoy COWBOY off Beachy Head. Fairly uneventful flight, few quirks to work out with the Prop pitch on this Hurri, kept changing even when I wasn't touching it (stupid thing went back onto AUTO) made it very hard to keep formation. Landed back at West Malling about 11am-ish.
Thought Jerry had taken the day off but a big do was picked up on radar at just after 18:00, we scrambled at 18:22 and met a load of 110s and Stukas over the Thames Estuary gunning for convoy CRUSTY. I got one, then met up with Red 2, having lost contact with the CO, to find another flight of 110s. Tackled one but clipped him during close maneuvers and lost starboard wing, bailed out over Canterbury way and got a taxi back to West Malling. We lost six aircraft and five pilots, including the Skipper, but claimed 18 109s, 21 110s, and 19 Stukas split between four squadrons which intercepted. My personal claims now stand at three 110s.
First sortie, standard patrol over the convoy.
Coming in to land, my first squadron landing...surprisingly organised, IL2 could learn from this. Still glad that Friendly collisions are off though...
Landed and taxi-ing
43 Squadron at RAF West Malling
Second sortie, turning into the furball, if in doubt follow the flak!
Diving on some Stukas, gave one a quick blast as I went past, but nothing came of it.
Chasing my first 110 of the day
Which the markings tell me is from ZG26
But not any more, he went straight in, no chutes. :nope:
The second 110...literally seconds after taking this picture...WHAM
Blacked out briefly, came to and found my Hurri was missing something...
So left the office rather quickly. Heard two explosions, my Hurri and the idea if the 110s crew got out. Given how they weld them into their planes I fear they did not.
