18 May 1940

Unfortunately, there is no concrete detail on the events of this day. At most, the ORB indicates the preparation of an escort mission, for Bristol Blenheim at 04:00, which is canceled ; while Brian Cull [1] mentions a brief confrontation with Heinkel He.111 of KG 1 without further details.
