Hurricanes of No.111 Squadron harry the departing Do.17s of 9th Staffel KG76 after their daring low level raid on Kenley at around 13.30. The raid caused heavy damage to Kenley, but thanks in no small part to the actions of 111 Squadron the Dorniers suffered heavily, losing four aircraft of the nine involved, the other five suffering heavy damage. As the Dorniers were flying so low, the Hurricanes were forced to break off their attacks above or to the side of the bombers, making themselves vulnerable to return fire from the Dorniers' rear gunners.
