Pingers managed to regain control and strove to return to action while Bunny did his best to get in amongst them, but was slowed down by the attentions of a vengeful Messerschmitt. Some nice manoeuvering shook off the heavy fighter, but it took him away from the action. Luckily PO Henry(Blue 2) and Sgt Patterson(Blue 3) had better luck and both bagged a Stuka, giving Patterson 2 kills.
All in all it was a bad day for the Luftwaffe, with 7 Stuka's going down and another one damaged for no RAF losses, or even any damage. Luckiest bugger of the night was "Bunny" Noel, who managed to survive being hit 5 times by a Messerschmitt 110 by rolling 5+ on 5 dice out of 8.
After day one the squadron has racked up 8 kills and 4 probables at the cost of 2 damaged, but repairable, Hurricanes. PO Flynn has even been awarded the DFC for his endeavors on the day.
Thanks to Andy and Pingu for playing, I enjoyed it and look forward to the next missions in a few weeks time.
