Aug 1940

As the Yanks say, I was robbed. Sqn was off at 0900 hrs checked in with Control and vectored towards Horsham a 30+ Raid. However as we corkscrewed up Sqn Leader called bandits 12 o clock high over us at Brighton. We closed on a Flight of 5 He 111's,but it was each of us to have a go one at a time. As tail End, My bloke was disappearing in the clouds so I followed alone. I fired at 800 yrds and closed the e/a fluttered then smoke 2 chutes came out and I saw the bomber crash in the channel. After landing, the Ops officer said not Confirmed. No one saw my kill , No boats in area. Headed off to the Pub ( lions and lambs ) My Rigger said I took 1 bullet in the Prop and it made a racket during the Post flight inspection.

Shoot a bomber down and there is only ever two chutes seen... I think the Germans have standardised the crew compliment in all bombers to two men... must be a shortage of trained aircrew!

It may have been 2 people for 1 parachute day or 1st come 1st served. However it is well known that there was a shortage of Silk and Nylons. Horror of Horrors even Betty had to do without during WWII.

Sqn scramble : 10 a/c to cover Penshurst AF. We found 5 e/a near the coast dont know the Height ( My Altitude guage was u/s, I marked my Kite as Serviceable because I didnt want to spoil the party ). The e/a were low so B flight made a head on diving attack then looped and made a one 2 on one attack. I covered as P/O Rierson got a bomber then 2 Me 110's came diving down chasing off after them, I ended up over Boxhall so headed back and ran into e/a I got one using the last of my ammo. I landed at Penshurst for juice had to dodge Bomb Pot Holes on the runway , but got in ok. Claims 4 Bombers shot down + Top covers 1 Me 110. Losses 1 Hurricane Pilot Bailed out.

Sept. 1940.

The Ops Officer informed me that I was 1 of 12 pilots that shot at the bomber that day. So I could have 1/12th or nothing. Nothing. If U can,t have the whole dog then what good is the tail.

Scramble: Over Esher at 15000 we encountered 10 a/c below so all 8 of us went down. The closest 6 were enemy Ju 88's I fired off Four 2 Second bursts ( No hits ) then got into a punch out with 2 Me 110's. I could not line up ,but fired a few anyway. Diving out of the Wagon wheel fight I spotted a 109 shooting down a Spitfire over Biggin Hill. Chased and closed firing off the last ammo, but the e/a got on my tail so Turn and Turn then split S ed Looking around the 109 went home so did I. Claims 2 Bombers shot down . Lost 3 Hurricanes + the Spit I saw shot down over Biggin Hill.

Hey Gents, I love reading the AARs. I haven't had much time myself to fly. It would be great if you guys could include total flight hours and confirmed kills for your pilots. Maybe even show claims pending here also.
Hope everyone will consider doing this. I am off to start a new Campaign myself.

No just make sure you advance time enough to make sure your flight (B Flight) and A flight are over the middle of the channel basically between England and France and back into friendly territory. Much more important if you are German, Brits mostly don't go that far.

Patrol - make sure you make it to all patrol waypoints.

I ran into one of the Bofins near the base and asked about The chain home thing. Gave the impression it was some kind of " Hocus Pocus "

When you land, you can also bump up time compression to 12x for a minute or two which can help get people back where they need to be!
