27 June 1940

Eleven aircraft take off from Kenley at 9h40 to join Hawkinge to escort a Bristol Blenheim Flight in charge of an aerial photography mission to the north of France. The mission is uneventful and everyone gets back to Kenley for 12h25. The staff of No.615 Squadron was then pleased to receive King George VI who, in addition to staying for tea, also took the opportunity to decorate the Squadron Leader Joseph R. Kayll and Flight Lieutnant James G. Sanders of the DFC. On another happy note, Flying Officer Peter Collard is granted permission to marry Annette Christina McNally. They move in, then, to Whyteleafe Road (Caterham).
