This morning’s victories for the squadron came off the back of 9 kills already recorded for the month, and overtook the Squadron’s previous “monthly best” a mere 6 days into the month. Peter Hall’s victory was his eighth since joining the Squadron, and MacLean’s was his first.
The Do217 damaged by MacLean was a “freelance” attack after they lost contact with the GCI station following their earlier kill.
