Good afternoon Comas,

HMS California suffered one direct hit and one near miss by 250 kg bombs on that day.

She was attacked by enemy aircraft while proceeding in the English Channel at 15 knots.

One near miss bomb fell astern and a direct hit on the after deck edge ricocheted overboard without exploding.

A support to the docking bridge was fractured.

Fighting efficiency was not affected.

Possibly no casualties.

Yours sincerely
