26 March 1940

Patrols continue to Saint-Inglevert with seven sorties.

Meanwhile, night training continues at Vitry-en-Artois. They are, however, interrupted due to a sudden deterioration in metrological conditions.

The day also saw the first mention of Pilot Officer Hughes in the No.615 Squadron. Unfortunately, this is the only instance where his name appears. At the present stage of research, it has not been possible to identify it.
