    Default Operation 'Circus 199' 13 July 1942 602 Sqn.

    I have been attempting to find Luftwaffe claims for the 13 July 1942 when about 25 enemy aircraft attacked 602 Squadron 10-15 miles off Berck-sur Mer and 37kms NW of Abbeville (JG26?) during the afternoon .So far no luck.

    A Spitfire (BM182)flown by P/O.Edgar Mostyn INNES-JONES RNZAF was the pilot lost that day when they were escorting 12 Bostons of 88 Squadron (?) on a raid on Boulogne.No Bostons lost.

    This was a couple of days before 602 lost their C.O. ‘Paddy’ Finucane.

    Thanks in anticipation,

    Digger.
