Act Pilot Officer John Marshall PrydeHi, Another long shot but here goes. In 1937 John Marshall Pryde was granted a Short Service Commission with effect of 1st July. On 3rd December 1937 his Short Service Commission was terminated on cessation of duties. After completing his Cadet training John later joined the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders as a 2/Lt in August 1940. While doing soem research at the local library I came across an article that indicated John had been in a crash and due to his injuries he had to leave the RAF. So would anyone have any details of a crash that involved Act Pilot Officer John Marshall Pryde between July and December 1937? Regards, Alex ....Read More.Alex Crawford on 13th August 2008 02:37:53

On the night of the 12th of October, 1943, a Sunderland flying boat was reported missing between Banff and Kinloss. The sea was calm, with a light southerly wind. A rescue launch put out from Buckie at 10.34. The Buckie life-boat was not called out. About 8.30 the following morning the small fishing boat White Wings, with a crew of two, one a man of eighty-four, picked up the dead bodies of five airmen about 200 yards north of Portsoy harbour. This was seen by the coastguard, who sent out the boat Nellie, but she found nothing. Shortly after noon a third boat -the Ivy - brought in one more body, which she had picked up at 11.30 that morning, off Redhythe. - Rewards, £8 and 4s. for fuel used."

Flight Lieutenant Hugh V. C. WEBB 79698I've found quite a bit more information about Flt Lt Webb through his nephew John Marshall Webb (author of 'Over the Gogs: the Webbs of Cambridgeshire') , but unfortunately haven't had much luck with Flt Lt Sercombe. Hugh Webb was 46 at the time of his death. After initially being turned down because of his age at the outbreak of war, he received a commission with the RAF in June 1940 and was posted to the Flight Control Room at Fighter Command HQ. Webb became a flying instructor in 1941 before applying for a transfer to an operational squadron, resulting in his posting to 21 Squadron in the autumn of 1943. During the First World War he was a private in the Artists Rifles before receiving a commission in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers, serving in Egypt, and in Palestine when attached to the 5th Norfolk Regiment. After the war he followed his father as a land agent, later qualifying as a chartered surveyor. Webb became friends with Canadian fighter ace George 'Screwball' Beurling, who spent several leaves with him at his home in Wales. Both Webb and Sercombe are now commemorated on the RAF Hunsdon Roll of Honour Memorial, built and dedicated in 2012. ....Read More.Jim C on 21st October 2017 04:26:23
