DH Mosquito XII HK227 ME-E (A/I Mk.VIII)
Pilot: F/O Scott
Navigator (R): Self
NFT & A/I Exercise II
Mild evasive action in all planes by target
SCRAMBLE – Searchlights
Round & round various orbits – with the usual amount of success.
In his journal, Broody has made a note of the various A/I exercises, a great point of reference to understand what “Exercise II” entailed.
Broody & Jack few another 2 Operational hours under the control of the Searchlight team. The ORB records no joy for any of the Squadron’s crews tonight, as all the enemy activity was “… unfortunately, outside our area.”
