    Default P/O Stuart Boyd Parnall and Squadron Leader James Parnall

    I can confirm that they were brothers. It's also my understanding that they are recorded as the first two brothers to be killed in the Battle of Britain.


    I can also confirm that Stuart did at one stage fly Gladiators.


    My understanding was that Stuart was unable to open his cockpit and had to crash land. He survived for one day before succumbing to his burns.


    The story told to me about James was that he bailed out over Belgium joined resistors but was captured by the SS and shot.


    This information was told to me by Stuart and James' late sister Estelle Babington Parnall. All three were my father's cousins.

    Hi,
    I'm sure, that the first two brother's to die during the B.O.B, and died within a day of each other, were Patrick Philip Woods-Scawen, 1/9/40, Charles Anthony Woods-Scawen, 2/9/40.
    Alan.
