I attacked one Me which was doing a climbing turn to the right. I fired 3 short bursts closing to 50 yards. I saw bullet strikes and the Me turned over to his back without diving. As I was attacked by another Me I could not observe more. I followed diving to 8,000 ft and approached to within 100 yards at which I opened fire, after two short bursts I saw smoke and flashes from the E/A and it burst into flames. I did not see the pilot bale out. This was at 3,000ft. Passing over the target I was fired at by m/g and over the channel I was followed by A.A.
100 x 4 m/g
56 x 2 Cannon.
