The usual patrols of the Saint-Inglevert area continue with six patrols (eleven sorties) between 10h40 and 16h20.

Flying Officer Peter N. Murton-Neale and Pilot Officer Thomas C. Jackson patrol Doullens and Saint-Pol-sur-Mer. Unfortunately, the ORB does not specify the duration and identity of aircrafts used.

[1] Étant donné les temps de vol, il apparaît peu probablement que le Pilot Officer Keith T. Lofts et le Flying Officer John R.H. Gayner ont chacun utilisé le Gladiator N2304. Il s’agit probablement d’une erreur d’écriture qui ne pourrait être solutionnée que par un accès aux logbooks des deux pilotes.
