Wing again on patrol over Kent areas. Considerable amount of A.A. fire. S/L. Bader’s radio u/s so the Wing was unable to set favourably . Some members of our Squadron saw about 7 Me.109′s above us. It was unfortunate we were unable to attack them as it is probable that some of them attacked S/Lt. Blake who was doing search behind the Squadron. He was found near Chelmsford. It is a great loss to the Squadron as he was very well liked by all as well as a pilot of exceptional ability.
