On July 11th, 1940, in terrible conditions, Douglas Bader climbed into thick, turbulent cloud where he spotted a Dornier 17. Hauling his Hurricane around, he brought his guns to bear, managing several bursts before the enemy bomber disappeared into the murk. It was not until Bader landed that he learned the Dornier had crashed into the sea off Cromer. It was 242 Squadrons first victory of the war and the First of Many achieved by the squadron and its mercurial commander.
