    Initials: N P
    Nationality: United Kingdom
    Rank: Pilot Officer
    Regiment/Service: Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve
    Unit Text: 91 Sqdn.
    Date of Death: 01/10/1941
    Service No: 100592
    Additional information: Son of Norman Charles and Eva Warden, of Andover, Hampshire.
    Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead

    Memorial: RUNNYMEDE MEMORIAL

    He made a number of claims:

    The book above has his middle initial wrong. TMotBoB has him joining the RAFVR in May 1939, called up at the start of the war, and joining 610 Sqn in 6 Oct 1940. Neither that book nor FCL have his Spitfire serial, shotdown during ASR escort.

    There is a photograph of Warden in the Osprey book 'No 91 'Nigeria' Squadron', the same book puts forward R7290 as possibly the a/c he was lost in. R7290 was the presentation a/c 'Doningtonian' and Gifts records that Warden WAS lost in this machine.

    regards
