5/i/44 – Scramble under Searchlight control

5th January 01:55
DH Mosquito XIII HK367 (A/I Mk.VIII)
Pilot: P/O Scott
Navigator (R): Self
SCRAMBLE – Searchlights
More accurately “Shamble”. The mighty “E” having developed a ginormous mag. drop, kit was being transferred to a fresh aircraft when the panic developed. Finally got airborne & spent some time orbiting but, their leader having been already knocked down, the Huns gave over & went home. A/I blew up on the circuit coming in.
