Saw Reggie Wall, who has alot of “superficial” holes in him. He was testing a plane and doing a wide circuit when six ME110s caught him over Dhibban. He did a crash landing somewhere, got out and ran for shelter and they dropped a bomb near him. The ambulance, which had been collecting the body of young Hertage, in that Gladiator, saw it and stopped for him, and was machine gunned by the Hun. Reggie had sent off a letter to Group Captain Bussell, telling him of our plight, as far as training was concerned, and that I had been saying that I ought to go back to the Frontier and the Army. Some lads, including Broadhurst, have now produced stories about the “Army officers having had it” and having applied to go back to the Army. Some people are damn swine.
Tiny and I had a drink with young Stoney this morning. Three Hurricanes arrived yesterday, to everyone’s delight. Today two Gladiators shoot down two ME110s as they are taking off from Rachid aerodrome.
