Quick tip, reduce your mixture at high altitudes to get full power, the higher you go the lower you have to run, in real life I believe the spit only had auto rich and auto lean as an option, but that's how it works here.

Also use war emergency power on takeoff and in the dogfight to get the full 12lbs of boost!

The Station Commander fixed me up to be posted to Tangmere on the dispatch a/c. It was over 2 hrs late but headed back to the Sqn.

25 Sep 1940.

The Sqn C.O. assigned aircraft " H " for Hauling @@# as my kite. B flight had the standing Patrol over London Factories. Vectored into Bandits near the East End. The e/a turned into 8-12 Me 110's below at 15000. I called line abreast and down we went nicely done drill. The Flight destroyed one a/c. Mine was heavy damage I hit him and my wing man hit him on the first pass then I came back around and him again The 303's Roared Dust popped up along his wing, engine, and fuselage, then he wobbled and flipped over after that I lost sight as his buddies hit my machine with fire. I split SS ed out of the fight and landed at Biggin Hill to check damage. Nasty looking holes along the tail and port wing with a larger hole near the wing Roundel The Sqn's second flight that day was worst as they lost 2 Hurricanes from A flight.

The Sgn knocked down three of the buggers today. One of them was mine. My 3rd e/a destroyed a Ju 88. We caught them after the Raid was hit by a Spitfire Sqn, A few straggling Spites came out of the direction as we went in. Spotted a few Yellow nosed Boys higher up, but they didnt come down to play. The Sqn lost 1 Hurricane destroyed 1 pilot wnd + 2 a/c damaged.

I say, smashing day. Scrambled for a 30+ Raid on London. Pinetree called ( Our flight of 8 Hurri's )Rumba Leader , the Raid has split up steer due North , Angels 15, buster. Soon below us were 9-12 Bombers. No Escorts anywhere so into the mix we went guns blazing in a echelon left . I got a few hits but nothing good, Even my 2nd pass was bad then the guns hissed empty. During the melee, I spotted 2 bombers going down. The Sqn claimed 5 e/a for 3 damaged. The C.O. in the mess said that I was awarded the Air Force Cross for my 3 confirmed e/a.

Smashing day. I was off ops for the day attending a tech meeting ( by Jove they are going to put camera's in airplanes ) some thing about claims over at Biggin Hill. I ran into the American War Observers group watching how the RAF went thru its paces. They had a bloody marvelous little Lorrie that they called a Jeep to run about in.

Bit of a cockup. The Sqn was vectored into a flight of 9 0r 12 He 111's S.E. of London. A good interception. I went down with Yellow section and hit the e/a then made a climbing turn to get above and hit them again. I spotted a good target and closed only to get shot at by A Spitfire that appeared out of the dark clouds firing at me or my target. Went into a tight starboard corkscrew and kept going.
Sqn claims 5 e/a destroyed for 2 hurricanes damaged + mine with holes in rudder.

'B' Flight, 32 Sqd
Biggin Hill AF

17 July 1940- returned from six days in hospital. Convoy Patrol north of Margate. Flight Leader spotted several JU-88's approaching Convoy Tango One at 13000'. 'B' Flight ordered to intercept. Several enemy aircraft damaged and were forced away from Convoy. Patrol briefly resumed when the squadron was bounced by a large force of enemy escort fighters. Badly damaged, I dropped to 1500' and dragged my two ME 109 pursuers over East Church AF where the ack-ack gunners threw up a fierce screen of discouragement. Landed back at Biggin Hill. 71 minutes flying time. Squadron decimated, eight pilots dead, eight machines destroyed. Waiting for stand-down orders. Have a feeling the orders aren't coming. Bugger.

'B' Flight, 32 Sqd
Biggin Hill AF

17 July 1940- Group has assured me of replacement pilots and machines within the next few days. I've sent the current 'spare' fitters and riggers to help with the defensive preparations. I'm sure they are thrilled with me. Dispersal scrambled us at 1400h to defend the Chain-Home station at Beachy Head. Patrolled between 12000' and 17000', no enemy spotted during the fifteen minutes we were kept overhead. Ordered home at 1445h, all four of us made it back at 1500h. P/O Ross complaining his engine is not firing correctly. Ground crew will pull it apart this evening. Right, I'm off to sit outside the hut, so damnably stuffy in here eh.

‘B’ Flight Leader
32 Squadron, Biggin Hill Airfield

18 July 1940- Dispersal scrambled ‘B’ Flight to intercept enemy headed towards Convoy M11 at 1500h. We were airborne in six minutes much to Skipper Park’s annoyance (“Do it in three, Thurston. Three minutes, not six.”). Over coast at 1515h, altitude 15,500’. Convoy visible 1 minute later. Intercepted several ME 109E’s of 1JG3 over convoy. Fierce dogfight, down to 4000’. Got one with several squirts at 150m, shot it’s right wing off and he spun into the Channel. We were all split up, was chased inland but managed to damage another ME 109E over Chain Home site. Landed at Swingate Airfield, damaged rudder, 1542h. Down to three fit pilots and four machines now. Right, off to meet with AVM Keith Park.
