F/O Thomas P.K. Higgs 111Sqn - 10th July. Higgs took to a lone Dornier Do17Z U5+FL. of 3/KG2 Firing many rounds towards the weaving bomber that was desperately trying to evade the ensuing Hurricane, but Higgs went in closer than his firing range, and still with thumb on the firing button clipped the Dornier with his wing before spinning seawards out of control with one wing missing. The Dornier also spun out of control. Higgs and two Do17 crew were killed.
