Fate In Battle is date of incident between July 10 1940 and October 31 1940. Fate After Battle is date of death after the Battle



The Battle of Britain clasp (worn on the 1939-45 Star – or a silver gilt rosette if medal ribbons only are worn) is restricted to aircrew from 71 defined units
of RAF Fighter Command, Coastal Command or the Fleet Air Arm, who flew at least one operational sortie between 00:01 July 10 1940 and 23:59 October 31 1940.

To see a larger database covering the entirety of WWll, refer to our Allied Losses and Incidents database. This database is the result of research into all known sources of information on the crews which fought the Battle of Britain on the Allied side. It is surprising that for the most significant air battle of WW2, and even after 80+ years, there remains any uncertainty at all about who took part and in some cases, what they did. We have made it our objective to develop this database into a most comprehensive and accurate record which brings to life those heroic deeds. You can help: send corrections and additional information via our Helpdesk.
We believe this database to be among the most useful records extant in terms of its searchability: for example, it is easy to determine all Blenheim crews, or losses on a specific date or the members of a particular squadron.

SpitfireSurvivedSurvived war2 February 2017 Age 99 in New ZealandBorn at Stratford, New Zealand, on December 6 1917 and worked for the Post Office before applying for a short service commission in February 1938. Accepted and left for Britain in September. Flying training in January 1939 and by early October had joined 613 Sqd, flying Lysander and Hector aircraft in the army cooperation role. Following the Blitzkreig in May 1940, the squadron was moved to an airfield in Kent to provide support for the British Expeditionary Force in northern France. As the situation became more desperate, the antiquated Hector biplanes were pressed into service. On May 26 Brown was flying one of six Hectors detailed to dive-bomb a gun emplacement at Calais. En route to the target, he test-fired his forward gun, but the muzzle attachment broke away, penetrated the fuselage and holed the main fuel tank. He jettisoned his two bombs and headed for base but ran out of fuel and landed on Herne Bay golf course. A few weeks later he transferred to Fighter Command. After converting to the Spitfire he joined 610 Sqd in late August. Based at Biggin Hill, heavily engaged during some of the fiercest fighting and when it was sent to the north of England to recuperate it was replaced by 72 Sqd and Brown was transferred to the new squadron. On September 23 during a patrol over Gravesend, he was attacked by Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighters and shot down. He was wounded in the leg and arm by cannon splinters and, with no control of his aircraft, was forced to bale out, landing on marshy ground near Eastchurch. After being shot down he was out of action for a few weeks. He then completed a flying instructor course and spent the next two years training pilots in Rhodesia. He returned to Britain in early 1943 and trained with Transport Command before becoming a ferry pilot flying routes to the Middle East. By the end of 1944 he was flying the four-engine Halifax and he then became one of a number of RAF pilots seconded to British Overseas Airways Corporation, flying Dakotas. Brown joined British European Airways after the war, flying with the airline until his retirement in 1972, when he returned to New Zealand. On patrol on 1940-09-23 in his Spitfire I (X4063). Shot down by Bf 109 during combat over Gravesend at 10:30hrs. His aircraft crashed and burned out but he escaped injury.

17 December 2013 Melrose ScotlandBorn in Edinburgh on 27 July, 1919. South Morningside Primary before George Heriot’s School. RAFVR as an airman u/t pilot (under training) a few days after his 20th birthday. Called up on 1 September, 1939. Posted to 3 ITW (Initial Training Wings) in Hastings, moving in April 1940 to EFTS (Elementary Flying Training School) at RAF Burnaston near Derby. Commissioned as Pilot Officer on 7 September, 1940, trained in Spitfires at 7 OTU (Operational Training Unit), RAF Hawarden, Chester. Posted to 611 Sqd at RAF Digby, Lincolnshire, immediately engaging in the Battle of Britain. 12 October 1940 transferred to 41 Sqd at Hornchurch. His Spitfire was returning to Hornchurch on 1 November, 1940 when, in poor visibility, it overshot the RAF base and strayed into London’s Barrage Balloon defence area. He struck a cable. 'The weather was still quite thick … my starboard wing struck a cable – not a pleasant discovery,' 'My first instinct was to bale out, but I couldn’t for two reasons; I was fully occupied holding the Spitfire straight as it tried to spin round the cable and secondly I could see I was over houses. If I had tried, I would almost certainly have killed myself. As it was I struggled hard with the controls and literally ‘flew down’ the cable with the airspeed falling dramatically. Finally, the aircraft stalled and did what I can only describe as a violent flick roll. At this point the cable, I think, broke and tore away part of the wing, and I went into a steep dive. On trying to pull out, the Spit turned over on its back at about 1,000ft and I thought all was over and I momentarily experienced the most unusual sense of complete tranquillity…' He went on to describe how he spotted a small housing development site just beyond a railway line and decided to try and land there. He aimed to hit the fence to reduce the plane’s speed, as the site was not very big and there were houses at the far end. 'I don’t recall much about the impact except that it was very much more violent than a normal ‘wheels up’ forced landing, which I had previously experienced. I was very confused and found myself in almost complete darkness and realised that the Spit was upside down and there was only a little light through the windscreen as it was buried in soil through into which it had ploughed.' He recalled the stench of petrol and thought 'he was about to be barbecued'. The canopy had slammed shut but two men who had been working nearby came to his rescue. 'A hob-nailed boot smashed the canopy. I was never so pleased to see a hob-nailed boot and I was pulled out after I released my straps.' Brown wrote: “The autumn of 1940, what memories! So very hectic, exhausting and frightening. The dangers, fears, excitement, the sadness and the fun, shared with some of the best people one could ever hope to meet. Waiting! Time is passed dozing, reading, listening to music or playing cards. The telephone rings: ‘41 Squadron scramble!” A dash for the dispersed Spits. 'Climbing at maximum rate, oxygen on at about 13,000ft, getting colder – probably about minus 30 degrees Centigrade … a gaggle of Messerschmitt Me109s dive on us out of the sun, their trails concealed by a drift of high cloud … gun button on to ‘fire’ … violent turns to meet the attack head on …chin pressed down on to chest and vision …darkening as G force increases … orange streaks of cannon fire pass too close … aircraft everywhere … a glimpse of an enemy fighter … a quick burst … more tight turns … a Spitfire dives past on fire and below, an Me109 with a Spitfire on its tail disintegrates … more evasive action, dive and tight turns and then level off.' Back on base, 'we thankfully retire to the local hostelry for the odd pint … there is no mention of absentees. So ends another day.' Left the RAF in 1941, Brown returned to Scotland and forestry. As a result, he volunteered after the war to assist RAF 317 Squadron, on the ground in the western-controlled zone of Germany, in Operation Woodpecker, a reparations scheme to get badly-needed timber to the UK where wood had been rationed for civilians during the war in favour of the military effort. In 1947, the operation also provided timber and peat for heating to Germans civilians, who had survived the war only to face displacement and freezing temperatures.

Qualified in November and joined 111 Sqd at Northolt on 22nd February 1937. 111 was the first to be equipped with Hurricanes, in December 1937, and was used a great deal in tactical trials. On 18th January 1938 Brown became the third pilot on the squadron to fly a Hurricane. In May 1940 111 Squadron carried out daily patrols over France, sometimes operating from French airfields, returning to Northolt in the evening. On 31st May over Dunkirk Brown got a probable Me109. On 6th June he was shot down by a Me109 in Hurricane I P2885 escorting Blenheims in the Abbeville area. Baled out and was put on a train and then sent in a hospital ship back to England. Rejoined the Squadron on 15th August and was back in action on the 18th, assisting in shooting down a Do17. It crashed and burned out at Leaves Green, near Biggin Hill. This was the aircraft claimed inaccurately at the time by the Home Guard, members of which fired at it with rifles. On 24th August he damaged a Me109 and on 2nd September he shared in destroying a He111 and damaging another Me109. Commissioned in September, Brown was posted to 260 Sqd at Castletown on 7th December 1940 to train new pilots. On 2nd February 1941 he went to the AFDU at Duxford, where he flew enemy and American aircraft. In October 1941 posted to the Ministry of Aircraft Production and transferred to the RAF Engineering Branch, closely involved with aircraft development and much later with the Martin Baker ejector seat. Retired from the RAF on 12th May 1947 as a Squadron Leader, retaining the rank of Wing Commander. He joined Percival Aircraft as Technical Sales Manager. He had flown 38 types of aircraft including the Me109 and Fiat CR42. In 1962 he moved to BAC and retired from British Aerospace in April 1979, as Executive Director (Marketing and Sales). He was made MBE for services to exports.

Archive Report on the loss of this aircraft

Born Birkenhead 1915. He joined the RAFVR trained as a wireless operator and air gunner. In June 1940 Sergeant Burns joined 235 Sqd at Bircham Newton, Norfolk. The squadron's Bristol Blenheims were slower than the likes of Spitfires and Hurricanes so were mostly confined to protecting aerodromes and escorting fighters across the Channel on bombing raids. As a gunner on the mid-upper turret, he had a number of close shaves during the war. On September 11 1940, he was in one of six Blenheims escorting six Albacores to torpedo the German fleet at Calais, where they met with anti-aircraft fire and were attacked by more than 25 Messerschmitts. Only seven of the 12 British planes made it back. On 18 November he shot down a Do 18 flying boat. On 14 February 1941, Burns was a member of the crew of a Blenheim which crashed on landing at Langham, Norfolk. The observer was killed, the pilot seriously injured and Burns suffered a broken collar bone. Burns joined 279 Sqd in December 1941, flying in Hudsons equipped with airborne lifeboats. Commissioned in February 1943, he became an instructor. In January 1945 he was appointed Gunnery Officer for 19 Group, Plymouth and a month later he became PA to AOC, AVM CBS Spackman. He left the RAF in March 1948. Left the RAF as a Flight Lieutenant in 1948.

Hurricane4 + 1 probableKIA1940-12-31Born on 15th October 1916. Educated at Magdalen College School, Brackley, Northamptonshire , where he became top boy. Intending to take up tea-broking, towards this ambition in January 1937 he was presented with his certificate in the Guild Hall, but having in November 1938 joined the Volunteer Reserve of the RAF, he was called up at the outbreak of war and posted to 213 Squadron, flying Hurricanes. . Joined RAFVR in April 1939. Training at 5 FTS Sealand on No. 44 Course, 6 OTU Sutton Bridge on 18th May 1940. Converted to Hurricanes to 213 Squadron on the 25th May.

On June 18th 1940 the squadron flew to the small civilian grass airfield at Exeter, and would remain in the thick of the action throughout the Battle of Britain. In fact as a veteran of aerial combat, on November 25th 1940 Gordon, as a Sergeant Pilot, was mentioned in a despatch ‘for gallant and distinguished service as a fighter pilot during the Battle of Britain,’ and this regarded an incident which occurred at 22,000 feet south of the Isle of Wight, when his squadron engaged over 100 enemy aircraft. Despite baling out, the Squadron Leader was attacked by three Messerschmitts, but warding off the enemy aircraft Gordon destroyed one and, by radioing the coastguard, enabled the downed pilot to be rescued.On 15th October he was flying as No.2 to F/Lt. JM Strickland when they were engaged by Me109s over Swanage. Strickland, in Hurricane V6544, went down badly damaged. Three Me109s attempted to finish him off but Bushell warded them off till Strickland was able to force-land in a field. Bushell damaged one of the 109s and for his conduct was awarded a Mention in Despatches (gazetted November 1940). He damaged another on 17th October. Killed on 31st December 1940 when he crashed in a snowstorm at Risby Park, Beverley, Yorkshire in Hurricane P3267.
