Biographical Data on every 41 Sqn Pilot, 1916-1946 (ca 700 men)Scott flew relatively few ops with 41 Sqn, but they included: 14 August 1942 – A Flight at dawn readiness. At 08:10, Red Section (Prickett AD271, Warren BL304) was ordered to scramble base, but returned 20 minutes later with nothing to report. Blue Section (Poynton BL304 & Scott AD271) was then scrambled at 11:13 and White Section at 12:11. Both sections returned at 13:45, with nothing to report. 24 August 1942 – B Flight at dawn readiness; A Flight at 30 minutes. Flying training was undertaken all day until 20:00, and included practice dogfights and formation flying. Fg Off Thomas Scott (BL518) undertook a local reconnaissance flight between 10:30-11:30, and Red Section (Scott AD271 & Schou AB809) was airborne on a patrol between 16:45 and 18:10. 10 September 1942 – A Flight at dawn readiness. The morning was spent on convoy patrols, and Sqn Ldr Neil took the entire Squadron up to conduct formation practice during the afternoon. It was the first time the whole Squadron had been airborne together under Neil’s leadership, and they spent 65 minutes in the air from 14:55. At 18:05, Blue Section (Atkinson AR392 & King BL850) were ordered on an offensive patrol and returned at 19:40 with nothing to report. Scott flew a convoy patrol as a part of White Section (Coombes W3935, Scott AB809) between 10:00 and 11:25 that day. 16 September 1942 – A Flight at dawn readiness; B Flight at 30 minutes. Local flying practice was carried out throughout the day and in the evening six pilots participated in a night flying exercise from RAF Valley, around 35 miles northeast of Llanbedr, commencing at 19:15. The participants were Sqn Ldr Neil, Flt Lts Douglas Hone and Malta Stepp, and Plt Offs Rycherde Hogarth, Thomas Scott and Tom Slack. 27 September 1942 – B Flight at readiness at 07:30; A Flight at 30 minutes. The weather cooperated again today and the Squadron had another busy day on the exercise: "Weather today ideal for flying and the Squadron was very active again today [sic] as the enemy were quite near to base in parts, and the A/C were attacking the enemy at there [sic] most advanced points near base; in red & yellow’s second sortie at 13.25 P/O Green, P/O Scott & Sgt Schou claimed a Hurricane each while Sgt Vine[’s] claim was one Defiant […] All sorties today were in Co-op with the Army Exercise, released at 18.00 hrs." However, the Squadron also sustained a minor casualty, which could have ended disastrously for the pilot. A Flight’s Plt Off Thomas Scott was flying one of four aircraft that took off from Eglinton at 10:35 for a 20-minute ‘attack’ on troops. As he took off, he “…hit a tree but landed okay.” Fortunately, Scott was uninjured and he was able to carry on with the exercise later, no doubt a little shaken for the experience. 9 October 1942 – As the Squadron had arrived at Tangmere several days too late for Exercise ‘Aflame’, they did not take part in it at all. The pilots were instead tasked with spotting and defensive patrols ....Read More.Steve Brew on 21st December 2016 05:12:14
