Commissioned October 1941. DHist file 181.009 D.3060 (RG.24 Vol.20635) has recommendation dated I July I 944 by Air Vice-Marshal S.P. Simpson, AOC No.18 Group. U-1225 sunk by Pll 62, 24 June 1944, 63’00’N, 00’50’W. The citation reads • “Flight Lieutenant Hornell was captain and first pilot of a twin-engine amphibian aircraft engaged on an anti-submarine patrol in northern waters. The patrol had lasted for some hours when a fully-surfaced U-boat was sighted, traveling at high speed on the port beam. Flight Lieutenant Hornell at once turned to attack. The U-boat altered course. The aircraft had been seen and there could be no surprise. The U-boat opened up with anti-aircraft tire which became increasingly fierce and accurate. At a range of 1,200 yards, the front guns of the aircraft replied; then its starboard gun jammed, leaving only one gun effective. Hits were obtained on and around the conning tower of the
U-boat, but the aircraft was itself hit, two large holes appearing in the starboard wing. Ignoring the enemy’s fire, Flight Lieutenant Hornell carefully maneuvered for the attack. Oil was pouring from his starboard engine which was, by this time, on fire, as was the starboard wing, and the petrol tanks were endangered. Meanwhile, the aircraft was hit again and again by the U-boat’s guns. Holed in many places, it was vibrating violently and very difficult to control. Nevertheless, the captain decided to press home his attack, knowing that with every moment the chances of escape for him and his gallant crew would grow more slender. He brought his aircraft down very low and released his depth charges in a perfect straddle. The bows of the U-boat were lifted out of the water; it sank and the crew were seen in the sea Flight Lieutenant Hornell contrived, by superhuman efforts at the controls, to gain a little height. The fire in the starboard wing had grown more intense and the vibration had increased. Then the burning engine fell off. The plight of the aircraft and crew was now desperate. With the utmost coolness, the captain took his aircraft into wind and, despite the manifold dangers, brought it safely down on the heavy swell. Badly damaged and blazing furiously, the aircraft settled rapidly. Detail provided by H. Halliday, Orleans, Ontario.

TV Mosquito aircraft D2642 was “Marker Three” of three Mosquitos from 627 Squadron which were to mark the target at the U-boat pens at Tmdheim for the Lancasters of Five Group. The Mosquitos first flew from Woodhal Spa to Lossiemouth where their fuel tanks were to be topped up. For some reason, 642 was not refuelled and the error was not noticed by the pilot on take-off. For part of the flight to Trondheim, one of the Lancasters had its radio transmission button in the “on” position, and details of the target were inadvetently transmitted to the Gennans. When the aircraft arrived at Trondheim, the target was hidden under a smoke screen, and the mission had to be aborted. By that time, 642 was now very short of fuel and the pilot headed for Shetland with the intention of landing at Scatsta. With its radio faulty, the other two Mosquitos accompanied the aircraft to relay messages. Contact was made with air-sea rescue at Lerwick which reported the Shetland weather as ten-tenths cloud at a thousand feet, with patches down to eight hundred feet. The unit also gave the aircraft a course which would bring it within sight of the Sandra light at Sumburgh. When 642 came within radio range of Sumburgh, the other two Mosquitos set course for Pterhead. As they flew south, the pilots heard Sumburgh warning 642 of high ground along its route, but no acknowledgment was transmitted. Radio contact between the Mpsquito and Sumburgh was very bad, the last message from the aircraft being that it was turning onto a course of 230 degrees. It was not until December 6th that three men driving sheep on Royl Field Hill came across the crashed Mosquito. It had not caught fire in the crash and its fuel tanks were found to be empty. The pilot of the Mosquito RAF FIL. J.A. Reid was buried at Winchester. Detail and photo provided by David E. Thompson, Stockton-on-Tees, England. IVATT, H.M. 117654. See page 352.

Gile had enlisted in Winnipeg, Manitoba with his brother who both had dual citizenship with the U.S.A. After he joined #420 Squadron, Gile was transferred to the U.S.A.A.F. but continued to fly with his Canadian crew to finish their tour. Halifax bomber LW427 took off from Tholthorpe airdrome in a #6 Group raid to Schweinfurt, Germany on Feb. 24/44. As they flew over Germany they were shot down by an enemy fighter at 11 P.M. and crashed with a full bomb load near the village of Ostelheim, west of Stuttgart. Next morning an enemy crew arrived to get a report for the International Red Cross and ordered the mayor to bury them as terrorists in that bomb crater. Instead two bodies were placed in separate coffins and five in another. Contrary to orders, a solemn burial service was conducted at 5 P.M. Feb. 28th, attended by a large number of citizens. The translation of the original address given by the mayor follows: “My dear fellow citizens, at an unusual hour and under unusual circumstances, we are assembled here on our cemetery. Today, we meet not to mourn a
fellow-villager or a near relation, but the first common grave has been opened in our cemetery for the crew of seven men of an enemy plane. “About the particulars of the deceased we know nothing as yet. What we know are but the names of an English or Canadian lieutenant Long and a sergeant-major Cranley. The fonner presumably wanted to get out by means of a parachute which did not open, the latter was rescued with danger to life out of the burnt up plane in an entirely unrecognizable state. Only two identification disks showing the names of a Can. Airman and John Gile were found. The names of the other three men are not known. “The crew with their load of bombs might easily have been fatal for our community if they bad been shed over our village. Easily a common grave might have been opened for our inhabitants. I know that many people here, and certainly the leadership, reject a Christian and humane burial, but the prevailing majority of us Ostelheimers affinn it. We ourselves have sons of our community in the front and can Sympathize with their parents, knowing how they would feel when they learn that their sons were done away with as terrorists. Such a burial, as it has actually been ordered, would not give us any satisfaction, “We are standing here before this grave with other feelings, it is true, than if they were our own people, but hatred certainly has to vanish in the face of Death. Every one of the deceased has father and mother, perhaps also wife and child in his native country, fretting in the same way as we do, for enemies by this action, but we simply act as Christians. If we would not act like this, we should not be a trifle better than those who know but hatred. “We have now surrendered the seven men of the crew to the earth in our cemetery, not entirely without feeling and emotion and even tears in the face of Death. But let us all be thankful in this our to our Lord that we have been spared from the charge of bombs, that very easily might have fallen on our village. “As the deceased probably were members of a Christian creed, a Christian burial shall be apportioned to tl1em which is now to be undertaken by our parson the Reverend Helbling.• “Otto Gehring, Buergermeister.” Note-After this d1ere was a prayer and an obituary with consecration of the deceased by Reverend Helbling. Many inhabitants, especially mothers, shed tears, probably in remembrance of their own sons. Detail provided by David E. Thompson, Stockton-on-Tees, England.

MYNARSKI, A.C. J87544. See page 551. – MYNARSKI, PO Andrew Charles (]87544) – Victoria Cross – No.419 Squadron – Awarded as per London Gazette dated 11 October 1946 and AFRO 1042/46 dated 1 November 1946. Born in Winnipeg, 1916; home there (fabric cutter); enlisted there 29 September 1941. Trained at No.3 BGS (graduated 18 December 1942). Presented by AOC, No.2 Air Command to his mother in Winnipeg. The citation reads – “Pilot Officer Mynarski was the mid-upper gunner of a Lancaster aircraft, detailed to attack a target at Cambrai in France, on the night of 12th June, 1944. The aircraft was attacked from below and astern by an enemy fighter and ultimately came down in flames. As an immediate result of the attack, both port engines failed. Fire broke out between the mid-upper turret and the rear turret, as well as in the port wing. The flames soon became fierce and the captain ordered the crew to abandon the aircraft. Pilot Officer Mynarski left his turret and went towards the escape hatch. He then saw that the rear gunner was still in his turret and apparently unable to leave it. The turret was, in fact, immovable, since the hydraulic gear had been put out of action when the port engines failed, and the manual gear had been broken by the gunner in his attempts to escape. Without hesitation, Pilot Officer Mynarski made his way through the flames in an endeavour to reach the rear turret and release the gunner. Whilst so doing, his parachute and his clothing up the waist were set on fire. All his efforts to move the turret and free the rear gunner were in vain. Eventually the rear gunner clearly indicated to him that there was nothing more he could do and that he should try to save his own life. Pilot Officer Mynarski reluctantly went back through the flames to the escape hatch. There, as a last gesture to the trapped gunner, he turned towards him, stood to attention in his flaming clothing, and saluted, before he jumped out of the aircraft. Pilot Officer Mynarski’s descent was seen by French people on the ground. Both his parachute and his clothing were on fire. He was found eventually by the French, but was so severely burnt that he died from his injuries. The rear gunner had a miraculous escape when the aircraft crashed. He subsequently testified that had Pilot Officer Mynarski not attempted to save his comrade’s life, he could have left the aircraft in safety and would, doubtless, have escaped death. Pilot Officer Mynarski must have been fully aware that in trying to free the rear gunner he was almost certain to lose his own life. Despite this, with outstanding courage and complete disregard for his own safety, he went to the rescue. Willingly accepting the danger, Pilot Officer Mynarski lost his life by a most conspicuous act of heroism which called for valour of the highest order. Detail provided by H. Halliday, Orleans, Ontario.

SCHELL, L.G. 15077. See page 674. The aircraft sin was not X240, the correct sin is Z 2148. Z 2148 was one of many aircraft in search of the Tirpitz off Norway. The aircraft flew from Northern Ireland to Northern Scotland to refuel before joining the search. On the evening of the I 8th., the crew took off for the long patrol, soon running into sever icing and turbulence. Then, unusually for a Catalina, one of the engines failed. The aircraft was unable to maintain height, and the bomb load was jettisoned. The pilot then set course for the nearest flying boat base, Sullom Voe. A signal was sent to Sullom Voe informing of the problem, and an estimated time of arrival given. The signal was received by the radio section, but for some reason, was not passed to flying control, which, unaware of the Catalina’s difficulties, closed down for the night. At about O I 00 hours, the Catalina arrived to find no reply to their calls, and no welcoming flare-path. After checking their position, the crew began to circle, continuing to make radio calls, which were eventually answered by Sumburgh staff, who in tum managed to alert Sullom Voe. It was a bitterly cold night with snow showers and pitch darkness. Men were ordered from their beds to man open boats and prepare the flare-path. To add to their discomfort, there was a change in wind direction, and the
flare-path had to be changed. Meanwhile the Catalina was losing height and began to circle over the sea to the south of Feltar where it may have drifted into the Colgrave Sound. With neither of the pilots or the navigator familiar with Sullom Voe a landing on such a dark night would not be easy. Eventually, at about 0500 hours, news came that a partial flare-path had been laid, and that the Catalina could land if the pilot so wished. The aircraft reduced height and had just set course when the crew were blinded by a snowstorm. It is likely that the aircraft was then caught in a severe down-draught, striking the top of the Hill of Arisdale on Yell, causing a loss of control. The Catalina skidded across the ground, breaking up as it went. The co-pilot, Flying Officer Helme, was thrown through the windscreen, but was able to return to the blazing aircraft and pull clear two injured crew members before being driven back by the flames. After making the two men as comfortable as possible, he set out to find help. Detail provided by David E. Thompson, Stockton-on-Tees, England.

SCOTT, C.J. R88662.See page 678. The Hurricane aircraft involved were V 6955 and AE 976 not AG 976. RAF pilot Sergeant John Porter 22, was taking part in a mock dog-fight high above the pit towns and villages of County Durham on St. Valentine’s Day, 1942. In the plane flying towards him was RCAF pilot Sergeant C.J. Scott 26, based with John Porter at RAF Usworth, near Sunderland. As crowds of shoppers in Spcnnymoor’s High Street and Cheapside craned their necks to watch the spectacle, the planes seemed to momentarily meet. The next second, both planes hurtled down towards Tudhoe Village, Sgt. Porter stayed in his Hawker Hurricane plane until the very last moment in what appears to be a selfless effort to ensure he avoided homes beneath him. When he finally tried to bale out, he was too late to save himself. In a similar, brave effort to avoid a major disaster, Sgt. Scott also stayed with his plane until it was too late. On.February 27, 1942 the Group Captain Commanding No. 55
O.T.U. wrote a letter to the wife of Sgt. Scott and described the funeral of her late husband. “Your husband’s funeral took place at the Parish Church, Castletown, near Sunderland, at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, I 8th February, 1942, the service being conducted by the Station Padre, Squadron Leader the Reverend Norman Turner, after which his body was interred in the little country churchyard of Castletown. Full service honours were accorded, the coffin being carried by men of his own unit, which also provided a firing party, and the coffin was covered with a Union Jack; the Last Post was sounded at the end. Wreaths were sent from the Officer Commanding, the officers and men, and his Canadian friends, also the staff of the local Y.M.C.A. May I now express the great sympathy which all of us feel with you in the sad loss which you have sustained.” Detail provided by David E. Thompson, Stockton-on-Tees, England.

TAYLOR, R.W. Rl l5283. See page 751. The aircraft involved was No. LK 998, not U 998 as reported. #517 squadron was formed as Meteorological Reconnaissance Squadron and was being trained as such. The aircraft to be used were to be especially equipped with a Met Observers position and Vickers Gas operated machine gun positions installed in positions cut into the side of the fuselage aft of the wing. The Halifaxes to be used were Mk I and early Mk 2 versions which had a badly designed tail and during violent manouvers the rudder would Jock. On February 23rd a crew undertook the first fighter affiliation exercise under the direction of the Gunnery Leader who stood behind the pilot looking out the astrodome giving directions as the fighter made his approach. As the situation developed he began screaming tighter! steeper! until the pilot objected and told him to buzz off. On the next day the Gunnery Leader flew with this crew. The exercise proceeded normally, according to the Spitfire pilot, until as he closed his approach the Halifax started to steepen up his diving tum to port went into a flat spin until the whole tail broke off and the ale fell to the ground, having displayed all of the characteristics of rudder Jock. The investigation revealed that the Gunnery Leader had served previously on Sunderland aircraft which were capable of absorbing large amounts of punishment in extreme flying attitudes.

WlLDING, J.A. 127908 See page 813. The aircraft No. was NP 681 not MP 681 as shown .. The crew of Halifax aircraft NP 681 was part ofa flight of Six Group who had the task of knocking out German forces in around the port of Le Havre, France. NP 68 I left the Bomber Station of Linton-on-Ose in Yorkshire, once the flight had formed up, and then set course for Swindon as a flight point. AJI was going well and the crew tested their intercom and guns. Once over Swindon they turned and headed out for the French Port. Just as they cleared the English coast. The operation was abandoned due to heavy cloud over the target. As the bomb aimer was releasing the bomb load over the designated area of the Channel it was noticed that one bomb had failed to release. After the bombs had been dealt with the aircraft was put on course for Yorkshire. Just as the aircraft was passing over Berkshire Downs the port outer engine caught fire. The flight engineer RAF Sgt. F.J. Andrew attempted to put out the fire and the navigator set a course for the nearest airfield which was Benson. As the aircraft was turning on to this new course the engineer notified the pilot that the fire was not out and was starting to take hold. At 8,000 feet the pilot gave the order to abandon the aircraft and all the crew jumped except for the pilot and the engineer. One of the crew reports,” As r floated down I watched an explosion take place and saw something blow away from the aircraft and the port wing to break away causing the aircraft to fall fast exploding on impact.” The object is believed to have been the flight engineer as his body was found with a partially opened parachute. F/O. Wilding maintained control of the aircraft long enough for his crew to bail out and prevent the aircraft from crashing into the Village of Wallingford., Berkshire. Thorb Thompson of Abernathy, Saskatchewan was the Wireless Operator Air Gunner and was one of the crew who successfully bailed out The Village of Willingford has erected a memorial plaque at the comer of Wilding and Andrew Road in honour ofF/O. Wilding and Sgt. Andrew. The plaque reads,”On the 9th, September, 1944, F/O. J.A. Wilding and Sgt. J.F. Andrew ofNo. 426 Squadron Royal Canadian Air Force by remaining at the controls of their damaged and bomb laden aircraft steered it clear of Wallingford to crash and explode in open fields. Their supreme sacrifice and conspicuous gallantry almost certainly saved the lives of many of the town’s inhabitants. These roads have been named after them and this plaque has been erected in grateful thanks by the Borough ofWallingford.””THEIR NAME LIVETH FOR EVERMORE” .
