  1. It would make more sense if this was a patrol that landed back at Biggin Hill as both aircraft are next recorded as going from Biggin to Hawkinge. ^,^
  2. Sgt. Pearce does not appear again in the record book again during August. ^
  3. It would fit if Sgt. Pearce flew this plane back to Biggin Hill.^
  4. P/O Smythe is recorded as having crashed on this sortie but is not recorded as having participated The casualty report gives the time of his aircraft crashing as approximately 1600. ^
