17th July 02:35
DH Mosquito XIII MM558 ME-E (A/I Mk.VIII)

Instrument take-off in shallow layer of fog. One bogie right at the beginning – no contacts thereafter. N & S patrol across Seine estuary & no activity, Ground R/T failure. Tried Hartford Bridge, but sent to Ford. Landed after one unsuccessful attempt in fog.

Cloud at 50ft at Ford, but clear by Winchester.
