DH Mosquito XII HK186 (A/I Mk.VIII)
Pilot: Lt (A) Davies RNVR
Navigator (R): Self
Quite good weather for a change.
SCRAMBLE – Searchlights
Much activity – raid on Harwich & Ipswich, but no joy whatsoever.
The ORB shows that three crews were scrambled for this raid, with no success from any. Lt Davies was a pilot from one of the 3 crews from the Fleet Air Arm on secondment to the Squadron. He can be seen in the middle of the second row in the Squadron photo taken earlier in the month.
2 days later, the Fleet Air Arm men were posted to 85 Squadron.
