I fly again, a sort of test, with F/L Clifton-Mogg, but he goes round and round in circles and I cannot really cope. Then an airtest and today I go out with F/L Bob Mackelwain over Area 1 – Dordrecht, Rotterdam and the Hook of Holland area, and I seem to cope this time. Weather and clouds are a bit tricky, and I see some 20 and 40mm flak directed at Bob when he dives down from 6000’ to 2000’ to take some photographs. No mail yet, and it’s difficult to get hold of a decent paper, though three or four days late. V1s go over here day and night, if the icing conditions are not too bad, and Bob shot one down two days ago in enemy territory. There is a very vicious bar here, and I am slightly flushed with wine writing this – *accounts for my handwriting!!
