I saw three or
four Me.109E's attack F/O Strzembosz and warned him by R/T. The Spitfire
turned right followed by the Me.109 and I fired a long burst of cannon and
machine gun from 150 yds from above and astern. The e/a exploded and went
down in a mass of flames. This was confirmed by F/O Paderewski.
A Me109 then attacked me from behind - I made a sharp turn and by pulling
up sharply was able to fire. I got into a spin and on coming out of it saw
a Me.109E in front of me, and got in three short bursts from 300/250
yards. During the third burst the e/a became completely enveloped in black
smoke - seemed to turn on its starboard wing, and then went straight down.
This aircraft had standard camouflage but a red nose.
No. of rounds fired: 56 per cannon. 270 per machine gun.
