In November 2017 François Dutil began adding extensive information and many images from his research files,
for which we are grateful. Please contact us via our Helpdesk if you have additional information or images.
"Conversion from the original data held as images of old teletype sheets must have taken Major Paradie years.
The Paradie database is as close to a treasure as the World will see.” François Dutil

DUPLICATES EXIST IN THIS DATABASE
We have integrated entries from several databases in the Paradie Archive and as a result there may be more than one entry for a given individual. To ensure you read all the data we have on a person, use the Service Number (without the prefix J/ P/ R/ etc.) to perform a further search for more information on that person.
DATA ALIGNMENT IN PROCESS OF BEING ADJUSTED
Owing to problems with encoding methods, some records require manual adjustment to bring data elements within the record into alignment. This is a lengthy and ongoing process. If the record you are looking at is hard to read, it means we have yet to make the appropriate manual adjustments, so send us a message via the Helpdesk and we will correct that record.
SEARCHING ON SERIAL NUMBERS
Most records were originally encoded with aircraft serial numbers in the format AB 123. The standard is to use the format AB123. We have a long term project underway to change all serial numbers to the standard form, but with 50,000+ records this is a long process.
If you would like our team to research a family member or friend who appears in this database, contact us via the Helpdesk. We will send you instructions.

Our hosting service imposes a 4-character search minimum. We are modifying our databases to permit 3-character name searches.
Add 'x' to 3-character name: e.g. to search for 'coe' put 'coex' in search box, for 'fox' put 'foxx' .
If you need help, EMAIL us with name and database to search and we will perform the search manually for you.
To search on squadron, append 'Sqn'. Examples: '72Sqn' or '416Sqn'

A Typhoon fighter, subscribed for by the Borough of Sutton & Cheam, recently had a swastika painted on its fuselage to mark its first success in combat with an ME.109. A Canadian pilot - Flight Lieutenant Walter Ahrens of Rosetown, Saskatchewan, Canada, who was flying the 'Borough of Sutton and Cheam' engaged the enemy aircraft. Another Typhoon pilot in his squadron also took a hand, and the German aircraft blew up and fell in pieces into the sea. The 'Borough of Sutton and Cheam' has been flown by Flight Lieutenant Ahrens fifty time, and the pilot says it is a lucky aircraft.

Anderson, stationed in Montreal since he entered the RCAF Ferry Command in September, 1941, had made five trips to England, one to South America, and several to Atlantic outposts as a pilot. He started flying in 1930 when he was 16, taking flight training at the East Boston airport. He returned to Perham, to the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Orin Anderson, and farmed until 1938, when he bought a light plan and was granted his commercial pilot's license. Shortly afterwards he established a flying service at Madawaska Lake and Portage Lake and conducted extensive beaver trapping operations by air over the wilderness in the western part of the state. He was widely known 'Maine flying trapper and wilderness pilot'. First of the Main flying trappers, Anderson received national recognition following an article in the Saturday Evening Post concerning his several hundred-mile-long trapping in the wilderness of Portage Lake. In 1941 he took special instrument flight training in Boston, before transferring to the RCAF ferry flight training course at Montreal.

Enlisted in Halifax on 5 March 1942. 5 Manning Depot, Lachine, Quebec, on 20 April 1942 and remained here until June, when he was posted to 31OTU, Debert, Nova Scotia. Initial training at 3 Initial Training School, Victoriaville, Quebec (Course 59) on 1 August 1942. 27 September 1942 posted to 1 Bombing and Gunnery School, Jarvis, Ontario (Course 64) and on 23 November 1942 he is posted to No. Air Observers School, Chatham, New Brunswick. He ends training here at 19 March 1942 and is promoted from Sergeant to Pilot Officer. 20 March 1942, posted to 34OTU, Penfield Ridge, New Brunswick (Course 10). Tansferred overseas arriving in Bournemouth in July 1943. 13OTU for course No. 4, and on 21 October 1943 and was transferred to RAF Stoney Cross. 4 November 1943, to 299 Squadron, on Lockheed Venturas, but conversion to Stirlings commenced in January 1944. Posted to 1665 HCU at Woolfax Lodge; at this unit, he joined up with pilot FS R. B. Herger and the rest of his crew, before being posted to 190 Squadron. On 8 February 1944 to 190 Squadron as Flying Officer. This squadron had been reformed at RAF Station Leicester East as an airborne forces squadronfor supply-dropping missions over France in April 1944. The squadron was involved in the dropping of airborne troops behind enemy lines in Normandy on D-Day, and continued operating supply missions over French Occupied Territory in the following months. From 17–23 September 1944, 190 Squadron played an important part in the support mission of Operation Market Garden, suffering heavy losses. Antoft took part in these operations from the beginning of May. On 6–7 May 1944, his crew had made an unsuccessful attempt to drop containers near Montaner, in the foothills of the Pyrenees in France, for SOE. During May, the squadron practiced glider towing, container dropping, and fighter affiliation, in preparation for the coming invasion. Very few operational sorties were carried out during this time. 5 June, the crew were briefed for phase two of Operation Tonga. In the first phase of this operation, glider-borne troops from Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire Light Infantry would attack the bridges over the Caen canal and Orne River, east of the Bénouville. Then, as part of the second phase of the operation, twenty-three Stirlings from each of the two squadrons at RAF Station Fairford (190 and 620 Squadrons) would be dropping 887 airborne troops of the 7th Parachute Battalion in an area on the north-east side of Ranville (drop zone ‘N’). These troops were to set up a defensive perimeter around the bridges.

From June to August 1944, 190Sqn involved in supply missions for the French Resistance and for the SOE, as well as missions dropping SAS groups behind enemy lines. From 14 June to 11 September 1944, Antoft took part in fourteen such missions. Most operations involved dropping containers, panniers and packages, but on several missions additional SAS paratroops were dropped over France. On 17 September 1944, Antoft flew the first of four operational missions in Operation Market Garden. On the first day of the operation, the unit carried the pathfinders of the 21st Independent Parachute Company that marked the landing zones for the first lift. At approximately 10.45 hours, twenty-five Stirlings from both 190 and 620 Squadrons took off from Fairford and set course for Arnhem. Six of the aircraft acted as pathfinders, while the remaining nineteen, including Antoft’s crew, were towing gliders that contained 130 airborne troops, seventeen jeeps, seven light and one heavy motor cycle, seventeen trailers, seven guns, and one bicycle. All except one carried out their sorties. Several aircraft were hit by flak, but the operational record also reports that the enemy flak positions were well beaten up by Allied fighters. In the following days, the unit was deeply engaged in the resupply missions. The Danish fighter pilot Flt Lt K. C. J. Pedersen took part in the operation as well; he was part of a group of eleven Spitfires from 1 Squadron who provided low-level escort to aircraft, gilders, and tugs.

At 12.10 hours. on 18 September 1944, Stirling IV (LJ943), with Antoft, took off from Fairford. The Stirling was towing a Horsa glider, carrying supplies strongly needed in Arnhem. Whilst over Holland, the aircraft was drawn into the slipstream of a Dakota. The pilot, FS Herger, took evasive action and the tow rope snapped. The Horsa, piloted by S/Sgt Newton and Sgt Douglas of No. 10 Flight, G Squadron, landed the glider safely near the village of Oude-Tonge on the island of Goeree-Overflakkee—many miles from Arnhem. The next day, 19 September, the crew flew the third sortie for Arnhem. Sixteen Stirlings took off at 13.05 hours. to drop containers and panniers in the Arnhem area. They encountered heavy flak and many aircraft returned damaged. Two aircraft failed to return. Two days later, Antoft was in the air again. In Holland, the British troops were trapped near Arnhem. The crew was briefed on a position in Oosterbeek, but, given the critical situation on the ground, no definite dropping point was fixed beforehand. Instead, the crew was to drop the load at 1,000 feet after a signal from the ground troops in that area, north-west of Arnhem. Antoft’s crew carried out the drop successfully, despite concentrated heavy and light flak throughout the run-in. At some point the aircraft (LJ943/C) was hit several times, and caught fire. The Air Gunner, WO J. C. Thomas (R.173863, RCAF) attempted to extinguish the fire, but failed—being cut off from the rest of the crew, he baled out at between 300 to 400 feet. The Flight Engineer, Sgt Hillyard, also managed to bale out, while the aircraft crashed north of a farm at Zetten. Sgt Hillyard had seen both FO MacDonell and Antoft putting on their parachutes in order to follow him out of the aircraft, but, for unknown reasons, they never left. WO Thomas and Sgt Hillyard were captured by the Germans within minutes of their landing; the rest of the crew, including Antoft, were killed in action. Initially, they were buried in the Refuge-Hill Church Cemetery in Zetten with the casualties of another Stirling loss (LJ982). The Dutch locals who were taking care of the casualties initially accounted for fifteen bodies of the eighteen crew missing. Following the liberation of the area, the bodies were reinterred at the Oosterbeek Airborne Cemetery, Arnhem, Holland.

Lawrence was born 10 Sep 1919 in St John’s, Newfoundland alongside his twin brother Wilfred. The brothers were born to Froim (Frank) and Esther nee Lusher. Frank and Esther had a further two children Marion in 1922 and Cyril in 1929. Lawrence attended school at Bishop Field College, Bond Street in St John’s, and then attended Memorial University College from 1938 – 1939. When war was declared Lawrence was the second man from St John’s to volunteer after his friend. His records state: ‘They were a 'local' who enlisted into the Royal Air Force in Newfoundland. They joined after August 1940. Was appointed as a Class F Reservist’ Lawrence joined the RAF and his twin Wilfred joined the Army. Wilfred’s family have stated that he served for 6 years in heavy artillery in the British Army. Both Lawrence and Wilfred were stationed in the UK for a while. Lawrence wrote to his mother ‘that he loved to fly over Ireland, it was so lush and green’. Their sister Marion worked as a civilian secretary for the head of the Naval Armaments Depot. Whilst serving in the RAF, Lawrence was given the nicknames Benny and Barney as seen in the book extract below: ‘On 3 February 1942, the remaining aircrews of the original four-squadron wing that had been assigned to the defence of Singapore had arrived in Karachi, together with a cargo of crated Hurricanes. With the victorious Japanese fleet now poised to enter the Bay of Bengal, it was decided that the first eight Hurricanes to be assembled were to be flown to Colombo to defend Ceylon. The pilots assigned were Flight Lieutenant Peter Fletcher, a Rhodesian; Flying Officer Joe Edwards, a Canadian; Pilot Officer Ian Adamson, a Scot from the Argentine who wore the shoulder flashes BLAV (British Latin American Volunteers); Pilot Officer Gordon Conway; Warrant Officer Thomas Taggart Young, an American in RAF uniform; Flight Sergeants Barney Banikhin and Bill Higgins; and Sergeant ‘Ginger’ Hicks. It would have been hard to find a more cosmopolitan group. We lost two pilots at this time. To test Japanese reaction a sweep was flown over Chittagong, on the far side of the Bay of Bengal. On the way back Barney Banikhin made a successful forced landing, but Hamish Weatherall developed a bad glycol leak and was killed when he spun in, apparently overcome by fumes. A fortnight later I handed over my aircraft to Piers Worrall, who took over readiness in it. I had flown it twice the previous day, but when he took off later in a scramble he lost his engine in a dead cut and was burned to death when he crashed into a pillbox at the end of the runway. In mid-1942, No 136 Squadron moved to Red Road, a strip in the centre of Calcutta, from where it could operate as a single unit. Because of the severe camber on Red Road, the Hurricanes normally took off singly on the crown of the road to assist in keeping straight. Failure to do so could have disastrous consequences, as Gordon Conway discovered one day when, while taking off as number two of a pair, he failed to keep on top of the camber and progressively drifted to port as engine torque and adverse camber combined. Just as he got airborne the port wing took the top off a sentry box that had foolishly been sited right on the edge of the road (it never was again). Thanks to the Hurricane’s ruggedness and some skilful flying, Conway got down with several feet of more losses in 1942 when Barney Banikhin flew into the ground during a practice attack and was killed instantly, and a month later the squadron’s American pilot, Thomas Taggart Young, hit a tree in the same exercise area and died from his injuries three days later’.

Citation DFC: BANNOCK, S/L Russell (C1086) - Distinguished Flying Cross - No.418 Squadron Award effective 3 October (supplement of 29 Sept) 1944 as per London Gazette of that date & AFRO 2637/44 dated 8 December 1944. This officer has completed numerous sorties including several attacks on enemy airfields on which he has caused much disruption. He is a highly efficient flight commander and has showed much skill and initiative in the planning and execution of his missions. His successes include the destruction of many flying bombs, three of which he destroyed in one patrol. NOTE: Public Record Office Air 2/9159 has original recommendation by W/C A. Barker on 31 July 1944 when he had flown 12 sorties (54 hours ten minutes), although the statistics given below do not agree with those elsewhere in the document. Since joining this squadron in June, Squadron Leader Bannock has completed four Intruder sorties, one Day Ranger and 14 Anti-Diver patrols and has been outstanding in his keenness for any form of operational flying. On his second operational sortie on the night of 14th June, Squadron Leader Bannock attacked and destroyed a Messerschmitt 110 at Avord airfield. Then, using the burning enemy aircraft as a target indicator, he bombed the airfield with two 500-pound bombs. On July 17th, this officer carried out a long Night Ranger to Leipzig, and in spite of doubtful weather conditions, reached his target area, destroyed an unidentified enemy aircraft at Altenburg and probably destroyed a second. In addition to destroying enemy aircraft, Squadron Leader Bannock has been particularly enthusiastic and successful in shooting down flying bombs at night. Since June 19th this pilot has shot down a total of 16 flying bombs, 15 over the sea and one over land; of these three were destroyed on one patrol on the night of July 3rd and four on July 6th. Squadron Leader Bannock is an excellent officer and has shown much initiative in the planning and execution of his sorties. His personal example and devotion to duty together with his willingness to pass on to crews less experienced than himself the lessons learnt from his sorties against flying bombs, have done much to increase and maintain the high standard of morale not only of the aircrew but of all with whom he has come in contact.

Born on the 08th January 1918. in Calgary, Alberta Canada. Husband of Katherine Grace. A Crescent Heights High School. At the age of twenty-two, he enlisted in the Royal Canadian Air Force and served in Europe and Malta during World War II as a spitfire pilot. On his return home from England, he went on to study civil engineering at the University of Alberta. Upon graduation, he worked briefly as an engineer in Ottawa and after the birth of his second child, came home to Calgary to be closer to his family. He then started to work at Burns and Dutton where he ultimately achieved the position of Chief Engineer of Heavy Construction. In 1959, he formed a partnership with his university friend Ian Campbell. They spent many years doing the work that they both enjoyed, completing many of Calgary’s major construction projects.

He was also a skilled curler in his younger years and golfed throughout his life. Lem shared his love of the game of golf with his family and friends at the Earl Grey Golf Club. He had a lifelong passion for literature, theatre and music. He believed in education and actively encouraged and supported his grandchildren in their pursuits, taking pride in their accomplishments. Lem lived life with integrity and care for others, setting an example by his actions. He strongly believed in the potential of all individuals. One defining contribution that exemplified his generous spirit was building, through determination, commitment and expertise, a camp at Gull Lake for people with disabilities named in honour of him. They lived in Victoria for the past four years, where Lem often remarked that “he was pursuing the even tenor of his days”, he and Katherine were able to enjoy the natural beauty of the city.

Returning to Calgary, his family felt blessed by time spent together. They had five children, Debbie, Harold, Sharon MacGregor (Ian), George (Nancy) and Tom (Menchie); eight grandchildren, one great grandchild, his remaining siblings, Mary, Kay and Tom and other extended family. He was predeceased by his mother Frances Sarah (née Twamley - died 27th January 1977, age 79), father Lemuel Arthur Wesley (died 01st July 1966, age 86), brother Jack, and sister Winnie. He passed away on the 07th January 2008, age 89.

Battle of Britain. Wounded on 1940-09-15 at 15:30hrs. He was shot down in his Hurricane I (V6625) over Shell Haven, Essex by a Bf 109.Retired Feb 1959 as Wing Commander 2010 Born Kamloops, British Columbia, Canada, 7 June 1916

“Butch” Barton joined the Royal Air Force at age 19, travelling to England to take a short service commission. He started his career before the war on biplane fighters with 41 Squadron. With the outbreak of the war, Barton joined 249 Squadron flying Hurricanes at RAF Boscombe Down. He became a flight commander with 249 during the Battle of Britain, once bailing from his Hurricane after it was hit from return fire from a Dornier Do 17 bomber. By the end of the Battle of Britain, he was awarded a DFC for his “outstanding leadership”. With 249 Squadron, he also took part on the air war over Malta, adding to the total of his victories. Under Barton’s leadership, 249 Squadron became one of the most respected and lethal units on Malta and in the RAF. By war’s end he was a Wing Commander with 14 victories to his credit. The Battle of Britain London Monument web page says this about Barton: “During his career he had always tried to maintain the highest standards of chivalry, once severely reprimanding an inexperienced colleague who had finished off a damaged German aircraft, killing the pilot as he was attempting to crash-land over England... “Butch” Barton died on 2nd September 2010. His ashes were scattered on his favourite lake in British Columbia on the morning of 15th September, Battle of Britain Day.”

Pilot Officer John ‘Jack’ Benzie disappeared during heavy fighting over the east of London 80 years ago on September 7. His remains went missing for decades – until two metal detectorists stumbled across parts of the aircraft wreckage at Blackacre in Theydon Bois, Essex, while looking for Roman coins. Benzie, from Winnipeg, was born on March 14 1915 and educated at St John’s Technical School. He served in Princess Patricia’s Canadian Light Infantry for three years prior to joining the RAF on a short service commission and came to England on March 16 1939 on the RMS Aurania. “He was trained by experienced instructors, men like John Betty, who had hundreds of hours in their logbook. “The training was thorough but, in the words of Tom Neil, his near contemporary at Montrose, still harked back to the last war. “He got his wings at Montrose in December 1939 and was commissioned as Pilot Officer. “After further training on Hurricanes he was posted to 242 Squadron at Church Fenton.” The squadron moved to France after the German invasion and he was shot down and baled out near Dunkirk on May 23. After recovering from his wounds, he re-joined the squadron on July 11, right at the start of the Battle of Britain, already a battle-scarred veteran. Benzie took off in Hurricane P2962 on September 7 and never returned from a combat over the Thames Estuary. He was reported missing “but believed to have lost his life”. A cable to his parents John and Agnes Benzie from Winnipeg on September 9 was confirmed by a letter written two days later. “An uncontrolled Hurricane which crashes into the ground from a great height makes a deep crater and at the time, investigating such crashes was not a high priority so Benzie was commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial. “It was not until 1976 that an aircraft archaeology group found the wreck of a Hurricane and the remains of the pilot at a depth of 18 feet underground. “The location, Theydon Bois, Essex, fitted Benzie’s last known position.” “No conclusive evidence to identify the aircraft or the pilot could be found to meet their criteria,” “Almost certainly, they are the remains of Pilot Officer John Benzie. He is remembered on the Runnymede Memorial, Panel 5."

Hurricane P2962 failed to return after combat ober the Thames Estuary. Suspected crash site and remains found post war but not positively identified. Runnymede Age 25

Claimed by Uffz.Emil Heinzelmann of 8./NJG1 Halifax DT795 at Wapenveld, 10km S Zwollow (Rheinsalm) at 4600m at 2350. Crashed at Wapenveld Holland
Commemorated Amersfoort (Oud Leusden) General Cemetery, Plot 13. Row 5. Grave 95. Netherlands (Holland).


Excavation of crash site in Holland 2014


Of the crew of seven, only three crew members were officially accounted for, and are buried near Amersfoort. The other four were officially still Missing in Action, and remembered on the Runnymede memorial. However, a war grave at the local cemetery at Wapenveld contains the remains of 2 unidentified crew members that were recovered from the wreck in the weeks after the 1943 crash when the main wreckage was lifted from the canal. Now after 73 years all crew members will have a final resting place: Sgt. Thomas Victor Trollope (tailgunner, age 22), W/O Frederick Henry Blake (pilot, age 26) and WO2 Rodney Webber (gunner, age 21) had been identified in 1943 and are buried in Oud Leusden. Sgt. Philip Henry Eldridge (wireless operator, age 29), Sgt. William David Hawkins (navigator, age 23), Sgt. John Ceredig Jones (bombaimer, age 31) and Sgt. Gerard Stanley Walters (engineer, age 22) had been declared missing in 1943. Unidentified remains of 2 crew members found during recovery operations in 1943 have been buried in Wapenveld since 1943, but did not account for all four crew members. A further investigation and recovery effort shortly after the war did not produce any further remains. The 2014 full excavation did, and the BIDKL was then able to identify all four remaining missing crew members. They will be laid to rest in Wapenveld. The existing memorial headstone to the unknown RAF crewmember(s) that was erected by local villagers will be retained and joined by four CWGC headstones.

(Photo: 18 January 1942 408 Canadian Bomber Squadron. P/O W.B. Brown, from Victoria, B.C., pilot of a Hampden, succeeded in bringing back their Hampden Bomber on one engine. When on a raid over Germany, the bomb doors failed to open on 2 runs over the target in intense AA fire. After abandoning the target, the bomb doors suddenly opened. The bombs were dropped and after passing through another heavy barrage of AA fire, one engine ceased to operate. The aircraft was brought home on one engine and a good landing made on reaching base.)
Commemorated Runnymede Memorial, Panel 99. United Kingdom.

JA714, piloted by Pilot officer W. P. Cameron, was hit by heavy flak over the Dutch coast and crashed at Waddenzee some 3 kilometres south east of Oosterend on the island of Texel, whilst on a bombing raid to Leipzig, on 20-21 October 1943. This was the first operational loss for the newly formed squadron. All the crew were killed. The attack on Leipzig was the first serious attack on this far-flung city. Weather conditions were described as appalling, and some 16 Lancasters and their crews were lost on this raid. Ground reports on the loss of this Lancaster state that the aircraft exploded in a tremendous fireball parts of which glided down slowly. The aircraft fell and then seemed to regain control at which point it rose up and exploded (possibly its incendiary bomb load blew up). The aircraft came down on the mudflats on Wadden Sea and continued to burn for time. Aircraft returning from the raid reported still seeing it burning. Only one body was recovered, that of Albert Snook, whose body washed ashore on the Terchelling Islands.

After several fitful years in which he failed to find his calling, he was drawn back to the battle in Israel, arriving on Aug. 5, 1948, with other volunteers. He was one of just five Jewish Canadian pilots with WWII experience who served in the young Israeli Air Force. Canter, who in Israel went by his Hebrew name, Zeev, joined the 103 Squadron in Ramat David and primarily flew Dakota planes on bombing and supply missions,

The son of Leon and Chava, Wilfred Canter was born in Kiev, Ukraine, on 7th February 1921. When he was five-years-old his parents emigrated to Canada, and settled in Toronto, where he completed elementary and technical high schools.

He participated in many flying missions, surviving all of them until 25th October 1948. Soon after a night take-off from Ekron on a supply run to Sdom, his Dakota C-47's right engine begin to overheat. The engine exploded within sight of the airfield, breaking off the wing and sending the plane spiralling into the ground near Kfar Yesodot. Killed with him were two Canadians, co-pilot Fred Stevenson and navigator Willie Fisher. British radio operator Leon Lightman, and Army Liaison Officer Michael Wimers, known as "King of the Negev," were also killed.

Buried on 26th October 1948 at the Rehovot cemetery.

On 29th September 1948, on orders from the Chief of Staff, he was posthumously promoted to Flight Commander.

Commemorated Runnymede Memorial, Panel 61. United Kingdom. Son of Alexandre and Marguerite Chase-Casgrain; Husband of Lorna Ann Chase-Casgrain. Sergeant Marie-Guy Chase-Casgrain of the RCAF joined No. 242Sqnn. on May 5, 1941. The unit had been formed late in 1939 as a squadron composed of Canadians who had enrolled in the RAF, but since the summer of 1940 replacement personnel had more often been British or European than Canadian. On Sept. 1, 1941, he was engaged in a strike on enemy shipping. A Spitfire of No. 54Sqnn. swooped down and opened fire. Its pilot realized his error and broke away, but his two-second burst had killed Chase-Casgrain. The man making the mistake was FO Edward F.J. Charles, a Canadian who had enlisted in the RAF in May 1939. Charles went on to a distinguished career, earning the Distinguished Service Order, the Distinguished Flying Cross and Bar, and United States Silver Star.

Mosquito lV DZ432 HS-NOn May 27, 1943 between 22.30 and 0.00 hour the crew of the DZ432 took off from air base Wyton in England for a Pathfinder mission to bomb Essen. The plane was taking the lead in front of a main force of a huge attack on Essen with a total number of 518 different planes. The task of the Mosquito was to mark the target. The mission was executed by 274 Lancasters, 151 Halifaxes, 81 Wellingtons and 12 Mosquitos. 23 planes were lost, of which the Mosquito was one.

This monument was erected to remember navigator Flight Sergeant Ray Hutchings Logan and and pilot Flight Sergeant Cameron Kent Chrysler, both of the Royal Canadian Air Force. In the night of 27 to 28 May 1943 they were shot down by a German night fighter around 01.54 AM. They were on their way home after a target marking mission over the German town of Essen. The next morning, the villagers found the corps of Flt/Sgt Logan in a ditch. Fl/Sgt Chrysler survived the crash and the two were moved to Rotterdam on the same day. The Germans buried Fl/Sgt Logan on the cemetary at Rotterdam Crooswijk. Cameron Kent (Fritz) Chrysler survived the war and returned home safely. 62 Years later on 2 May 2005 he returned to Bleskensgraaf for a short visit. Their plane, a British De Havilland Mosquito Bomber Mark IV registration DZ432 HS-N, exploded high in the sky following which the debris came down scattered over a large area in these surroundings. The remains were cleared by the Germans, but they missed this propeller which was found in the pasture next to the memorial.

Son of Leonard (died 1th April 1978, age 95) and Ellen Conway (née Thompson - died 31st March 1970, age 87), of East Angus, Province of Quebec, Canada.

Posthumous DFC Citation:

'This officer has completed numerous photographic reconnaissance sorties, all at levels below 4,000 feet and some almost ground level. Nearly all have involved deep penetrations within the main enemy fighter areas and all have been within the best range of medium or light anti-aircraft fire. In no case has he had fighter cover or escort. Before the invasion of Normandy, Flying Officer Conway photographed a heavily defended military installation at Le Treport from ground level. Though his aircraft was damaged by the defences he obtained fine photographs. He also secured outstanding pictures of bridges on the Somme. Since the invasion he has completed many more missions, on three of which he has been intercepted by enemy fighters. This did not deter him from completing his tasks successfully. Flying Officer Conway's courage and determination have been highly commendable at all times'.

Wounded 1940-09-09 at 18:00hrs. Baled out of Spitfire I (N3049) over East Grinstead after being shot down by a Bf 109. Killed 1940-10-08 at 09:30hrs. Spitfire I (R6779) was shot down by a Bf 109 near Chatham, crashed at Bayfors Marshes. Upchurch St Mary Churchyard England
br>Born November 4, 1919 Saskatchewan Canada. On a family holiday to England he applied to the de Havilland Aircraft Company’s Aeronautical Technical School at Hatfield, Hertfordshire. Joined RAFVR in November 1937. Training at No. 9 Advanced Flying Training School, posted to No. 7OTU at Hawarden, Cheshire, on July 7, 1940 on Spitfires. July 26 reported to 66Sqn at Coltishall, Norfolk. First true combat experience on September 9, 1940, and it was not a pleasant experience. Dodging often heavy rain showers, Pilot Officer Corbett was part of a group attacking German bombers, escorted by enemy fighters, intent on attacking London. After already damaging a Messerschmitt 109, he was positioning his aircraft for a rear attack on a bomber when he was bounced by three German fighters. With the cockpit filling with smoke and the controls jammed, he found himself in a severely damaged, uncontrolled aircraft plummeting toward the ground in a tight spiral dive. At 12,000 feet (3,658 metres), he bailed out, suffering a slight injury in the process. September 27 intercepted German bombers attacking London. In the midst of heavy British defensive fire from anti-aircraft guns below, he got a quick burst into one bomber before breaking off the attack and leaving the damaged enemy aircraft to other RAF fighters. He then selected a lone Junkers 88 as his next target, closed to within yards of the German aircraft, and opened fired. The enemy aircraft fell away, its port engine burning fiercely, but the smoke was so thick that Corbett had to break off the attack. His Spitfire was damaged by friendly fire when an artillery shell burst nearby, destroying one elevator and riddling the fuselage and starboard wing with shrapnel. He skillfully executed a forced landing in the London district of Orpington, emerging from his damaged but repairable Spitfire with a new-found respect for anti-aircraft gunners and a Junkers 88 claimed as destroyed. On October 8, 1940, Pilot Officer Corbett, wearing a new watch sent by his parents as a 21st birthday gift, was climbing with his squadron to intercept yet another formation of German raiders when they were surprised by a large number of Messerschmitt 109s. In a slashing attack, Corbett and one other 66 Squadron pilot were shot down near Bayford Marches, Upchurch; neither pilot survived. The Reverend William Joseph Wright was at his church, St. Margaret of Antioch, and witnessed the dogfight. When Corbett’s aircraft crashed, the clergyman ran to the site, hoping to provide assistance. But “…it was clear, due to the bullet damage around the cockpit, that the pilot had been killed instantly before the crash. I offered prayers and a blessing, and stayed until the body was recovered. The pilot’s own parachute was used as a shroud.” Back in Canada, in a cruel twist of fate, his mother, Mabel, received a letter from her son days after being officially informed that he had been killed. Corbett wrote, “Having got out OK, my confidence has tremendously increased and I want you to be confident also. We’re seeing plenty of action here every day and I’ll be back in the fight tomorrow. The Jerries are a long way from getting supremacy in the air, and until they get it, there’ll be no invasion.”

Our heroes of the Battle of Britain clearly understood what they were fighting and sacrificing for.

Westland Wallace


Crash Site, Bennachie Scotland
Ferrying target tug of No. 1 Air Observer School, from Aberdeen to RAF Evanton through Scottish fog, when he slammed into a granite peak in the Bennachie Hills. Although PO Cummings had taken the Westland Wallace biplane on the correct route along the Dyce to Evanton leg of the journey, he was too low and, due to poor visibility, was unable to successfully clear Bennachie. The two men, who were the sole occupants of the aircraft, crashed into the hill’s Bruntwood Tap summit and died. Their bodies were found still strapped into their seats. Some of the wreckage of the Wallace remains on the hill to this day, left in honour of their bravery.He and his air gunner, LAC Ronald Stewart, were killed instantly — the second and third Allied servicemen to die in the war. Cummings was the first Canadian to die in the war, and his mother Edith would be the first of more than 45,000 Canadian mothers to suffer the loss of a child to the war in the next five years. Son of James Victor and Edith Fanny Ethel Cummings, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada Buried in the Grove (Persley) Cemetery, Aberdeen

Flight Lieutenant Robert Monroe 'Tex' Davenport, American pilot of 401Sqn RAF (which he has been serving as a volunteer since October 1941), on 'Rhubarb' mission during the attack on the launch site de V1 de Vacquerie, in Pas-de-Calais, is reported missing in Spitfire registration number MH827, after being shot down by the FlaK. However, he managed a makeshift landing and escaped capture, not without having come under fire from the German soldiers who had come to take him. We will know later that he was able to escape with the help of the Resistance networks via the Pyrenees and Gibraltar. He will be back in his unit on April 10, 1944 and will resume service combat on May 10. He will then obtain 5 approved aerial victories including 1 in collaboration on a Messerschmitt Me-262, and 1 enemy aircraft damaged.
