6/7 December, 1940; NIGHT PATROL/AERODROMES:
After four nights of waiting, 5 of the squadron's night patrol aircraft took off to 'destroy enemy aircraft', (those attacking Bristol) in conjunction with 15 Hampdens from other squadrons.
Tragedy was to befall the squadron this night when it was later established that 2 aircraft had failed to return from operations: Sgt pilot Stuart Greeves (X3050) and crew came down in the North Sea, to the west of Ostend due to flak damage. All four members of the crew are still officially classified as missing.
