12 March 1940

The usual patrols in the Saint-Inglevert area continue with six patrols (thirteen sorties) between 06h55 and 16h15.

Pilot Officer David J. Looker (N5586) returns quickly from his patrol at 12h10, following a magneto problem. The technical incident seems, however, minor and Flying Officer Lionel M. Gaunce takes off with the same aircraft at 13:05.
