9 July 1940
Contrary to the previous days, some pilots patrol Kenley at night and at dawn. This is the case of Flight Lieutenant James G. Sanders, which takes off twice: first individually between 01h35 and 02h45, then with Pilot Officer Keith T. Lofts and Pilot Officer David Evans (04h15 – 05h30). They are followed by Flying Officer Herbert S. Giddings, Pilot Officer Ralph Roberts and Pilot Officer Sergeant Derrick W. Halton (05h00 – 06h00). Weather conditions appear to be deteriorating as pilots have to divert to the Northolt and Croydon aerodromes in order to land.
In anticipation of future operations, No.615 Squadron is ordered to use Redhill as a forward airfield.
