    Default The Riddle brothers of 601 Squadron during 1940

    Hello,

    I’m trying to sort out the claims of the Riddle brothers of 601 Squadron during 1940.
    As far as I understand Christopher John Henry served in ‘A’ Flight and Hugh Joseph served in ‘B’ Flight.

    I’ve found claims on the following dates:

    400518 16:25 He 111 Unconfirmed/Probable ‘France’ (CJH Riddle)
    400519 15:10 He 111 Destroyed SE Cambrai/Douai-Cambrai (HJ Riddle)
    400527 13:21-14:50 Bf 110 Damaged Gravelines area/Dunkirk
    400711 11:35 Ju 87 Unconfirmed Portland Bill
    400711 11:35 Bf 110 Destroyed/Shared destroyed Portland Bill
    400813 06:45 Ju 88Shared damaged/Damaged Selsey/Hazlemere
    400813 16:00 Bf 110 Probably destroyed Southampton-Winchester
    400904 13:30 Do 17 Shared destroyed S Worthing

    Depending on source the claims are credited to either of them. Is there anyone with access to 601 Squadron ORB or their logbooks that can help me sort it out?

    Best wishes/Håkan

    Hi, i can only suggest this N/A link for 9 Combat Reports by one of the Riddle brothers during 1940, discovery.nationalarchives.gov.uk/details/r/D7449264 if you have not already done so.

    Hello Alan,

    Thanks for your reply!
    Since they are slightly outside my "normal" interest, I didn't want to spend any money on the at NA (I spend enough there as it is...) :-)
