    Default 66, 92, 229 and 303 Squadrons ORBs 8 Oct 1940

    According to The Fighter Command War Diaries, (Vol 2) 66, 92, 229 and 303 Squadrons were in action during early morning operations against Bf 109s.

    Does anyone have the ORBs for these squadrons, please? I'm particularly interested in actual take-off times between 0800 and 0900 hours; the height of any engagements (66, 229 and 303 Squadrons each lost one pilot), and the location.

    Edit: The FCWD Vol 2 credits 92 Squadron with one aircraft destroyed, but the squadron diary (summarised at http://92squadron.com/ ) makes no reference to any such claim. In fact the two sources don't appear to tie up very well on other days in this period.
