    Default No.17 Squadron, 4th June 1940.

    Good afternoon,

    On the 4th of June 1940, No.17 Squadron flew two patrols over Dunkirk from RAF Hawkinge.
    No times up and down, no number of aircraft involved in neither No.17 Squadron's F540 nor F541.
    Could anyone help me.
    Do you think I can get this information from RAF Hawkinge ORB ?
    J.

    Hi Blue Two

    The 11 Group ORB for 4 June 1940 simply states,

    "1944 - 12 aircraft 17 Squadron left Kenley to investigate Rds. X.26 and X.27. Landed 2109. No interceptions."

    This is the only patrol mentioned; I don't see anything else listed for 17 Sqn between 04:08 and 19:44 on 4 June.

    Regards

    Thank you very much Steve,

    No.17 Squadron's F540 on this date:
    "Weather good. Two patrols were carried out from Hawkinge but no enemy were sighted. Squadron returned from Kenley to Hawkinge".

    That's all, and no F541 available for this period.

    Steve, I quite often visit your website and I appreciate it very much. It is a beautiful work.

    Best Regards.
