Flying as Blue 2. in the left formation of four, I saw, on approaching Le Havre, about 7 e/a. 5 miles to S.E. at 14,000ft. I kept my eye on this formation. After a sharp left turn by the squadron I found myself slightly behind, facing Le Havre and I saw P/O. Wyszkowski attacking a F.W.190 about 3 miles west of Le Havre. At this moment I observed, about 4-5,000ft. below me, 2 F.W.190's climbing. One of these broke away to the right, while the other attacked a Spitfire. I opened fire with cannon and m/g. from above and slightly to port at 300 yds. closing to 150 yds. After about 3 seconds, the F.W.190. ceased firing and greyish smoke began to pour from it. I got in another burst and a few seconds later the e/a. after seeming to hover in the air, went into a steep dive. P/O Przygodski saw e/a. on fire and I therefore claim 1 F.W.190 as destroyed. Cine Camera Gun was carried and exposed.
