We took off at 1143 to escort Stukas to their attack on Dover and Deal.
The Stukas split over Dover. On Group attacked the harbour and the other was to fly onwards to Deal to attack the train station. Somehow the Stukas seemed to be confused since they circled the dover area for some minutes before flying to Deal. Because of this we had to stay in the Dover area as well to protect them and were in static position.
At 1208 We were attacked by Spitfires from above. A dogfight started and all 3 mates of my Schwarm got damaged and had to head back home. I was fyling alone from then on but was still in radio contact with Schwarm 2 and the other Staffeln. It was a big dogfight going on between Dover and Deal.
After the Stukas finally managed to bomb the Deal trainstation the flew back to France at an altitude of 500m. A bit off the coast they got attacked by a Squadron of Hurricanes. I dived in and attacked them. I was the only 109 around fighting the 10 to 12 Huricanes. I heavily damaged three of them but due to the action I couldn't see if I shot them down or if they were able to keep on flying. By reaching the middle of the channel the las Hurricanes turned home.
I landed on Maqruise East at 1232. My 109 was without any damage.
