12 Dec 1942

12 Dec 1942

Landed on 3 Swordfish of 840 Squadron (the 4th aircraft belonging to the squadron was left at NAS Norfolk as an AR aircraft in charge of SBNO), in Chesapeake Bay. As pilots had not deck-landed for some considerable time each did 2 dummy runs before landing on. Owing to the restricted sea room the ship had to turn down wind after landing on the first aircraft. The barriers were not used.
