GENERAL REPORT.

At about 25,000 ft. at approximately 1840 near St. Omer, whilst flying with Sgt. Cwynar I saw three Me.109E's on my port side and I attacked close behind Sgt. Cwynar. Just as I was going to open fire I saw one 109 in flames, which appeared to be the one attacked by Sgt. Cwynar. I opened fire with m/g and cannon at the next aircraft and observed black smoke coming from it, but I could not see what happened because I lost conciousness and only regained it at 8,000 feet having managed to bring my aircraft out of a spin, but at this moment I saw on my port side a 109 burining well. My attack was made from above almost vertical onto the aircraft from very short range, and I am positive that this aircraft must have been destroyed.

Rounds fired: - Cannon 35 + 35 M/g 200

Signed /-/

315 Squadron.
