Flight Lieutenant Al Deere of 54 Squadron. July 9th after destroying a Bf109, he collided with another and crashed into a cornfield. Six days later, after fighting several furious actions, he was obliged to bale out at low level. He fractured a wrist but spent only one night in hospital before returning to his squadron. To his chagrin he was then shot down by another Spitfire. Shortly afterwards he was bombed when taking off at Hornchurch.
