Train buster " Bisty " Grant Sq 400 , 1943Several years ago I was contracted to comment on a number of Second World War documentaries which a National Film Board employee had discovered (or rediscovered) and who was thinking of a production based on these which was never truly defined and not carried through. I still have my notes on these fillms, including "Train Busters". What follows are my observation about it, followed by notes on the two pilots shown in the "Train Busting" sequences: Figures such as "6.35" refer to the time into the film relevant to the scenes described: Train Busters This is one of the more curious films in the batch; it seems to have been patched together by a producer who found his office littered with assorted films which he decided to assemble without much thought or planning. For the aircraft recognition experts, this film contains a wealth of "howlers". Train Busters relies for openers (as do other films) on some First World War footage (authentic on the ground, Hollywood clips in the air). It jumps through the interwar period, then deals with RCAF anti-submarine patrols (Catalina flying boat, convoy protection, a mock attack on a submarine with an acted-out Operations Room sequence). It then leaps again - overseas - to the bombing campaign, talking (in Lorne Greene's unmistakable voice) about the RCAF Bomber Group - but the first bombers shown are Stirling aircraft - a type never flown by RCAF squadrons. The movie then follows through an over-simplified crew briefing until (at 6.35 on the film) the airmen go to their bombers. At last we have RCAF Halifax bombers (LQ of No.405 Squadron prominently shown) - but in flight we have twin-engined Wellingtons (7.50) which finally re-emerge as four-engined Halifaxes (8.30). The triumphal note about burning German cities (9.03) may repel modern viewers - but that was how the world thought and worked in 1943. The Bomber Command sequences are followed by references to the air war in the Mediterranean (which would have been recent news to 1943 viewers). Again, the footage has some anomalies that only a hawk-eyed nit-picker would spot; the Wellington bombers supposedly dropping mines (9.50) are actually dropping torpedoes. Finally (at 12.00) we get to the part of the film directly relevant to the title - aerial campaigns waged against enemy rail traffic in Europe. This portion concentrates on a supposed attack by two pilots, D.M. Grant and J.A. Morton, on a German train. The men are real - the attack itself is a piece assembled from film snippets to tell a story. Events similar to this action did occur - but the clips as used are a hodge-podge of film. The men take off in Mustang aircraft, cross the English Channel in Spitfires (taking time to straf a ship), then attack a train while flying Hurricanes. For the sake of drama, the sequence suggests that they have set off looking for a specific train known to be carrying military equipment; in fact, most such operations consisted of aircr ....Read More.HughAHalliday on 24th January 2008 07:47:22

410522 - Unaccounted airmen - 22-5-1941Hi Henk Rider,28,is registered in Mid Glamorgan, S Wales. This is some way from Odiham where the Tomahawk was based but Peter Lochnan,27 is also registered in S Wales,at Llanelly. 400 Sqn got it's Tomahawks in Apr 41 and could well have been using a training facility such as a Gunnery Range in S Wales. It might explain why both are registered in the same general area. Tressider,24, is registered at Aylesbury, Buckinghamshire which could mean RAF Halton which was a Hospital as well as the RAF Apprentice Training School Regards Dick ....Read More.Dick on 1st October 2008 10:18:34

Only one Tomahawk lost that day. 'Sea search' and 'died of wounds or injuries received in action' for LOCHNAN has my preference for the Lysander. What's "Dakota's" idea ?

The crash was at Bolton, his death registered at Bolton and buried at Bolton (not known where he hailed from). The match to the Tomahawk could fit if CWGC had not listed 10 Sqn. Don't know what to do (ignore CWGC's 10 Sqn ?) or for the time being keep him with some annotations on the unaccounted list.
