    Resurrecting this old thread.

    I was looking at the Unaccounted Airmen list for 1941, specifically the entry for Burnet and Poulton. After looking at the death certs for the two airmen I now think that the aircraft involved were V6754 , about which there is no confusion, and P3422, NOT P8810 as cited in some sources, ABS for one.

    Poulton came down at Hill of Menduff, Drybridge near Buckie; Burnet at Black Hill Balnamoon near Buckie. The issue of who was in which a/c remains.

    Although ABS lists for P3422 229S only, Fighter Squadrons (Rawlings) lists it for 232S too.

    Sergeant Herbert Arthur VERRELLS (1281121) Pilot 1941-09-23 Iceland Reykjavik (Fossvogur) Cemetery
    Hurricane Z4607

    http://70brigade.newmp.org.uk/wiki/1...September_1941
    23rd September 1941

    The Force Exercise was postponed to 24th September.

    The Brigade search parties set out at 10:00 hours. Each Battalion was allocated an area to search. The Battalion parties were composed of an Officer and eight Other Ranks, there being, all told, ten parties per Battalion. Intercommunication was done by No 18 Set and No 11 Set to Brigade.

    At about 11:00 hours Captain Johnstone and Lance Corporal Percival were found; they had just staggered into a farm house on the North side of the pass, and were in an exhausted condition.

    At 09:29 hours there was an Air Raid message YELLOW followed by an Air Raid message WHITE.

    A Hurricane crashed on the South side of ESJA near Lt Brewis’ search party. The crash occurred at about 11:30 hours. 2/Lt Dunnell went up with a party and brought the pilot back. The pilot was dead and the ‘plane had burnt out.

    Thanks to the research efforts of George Brown, James Pasby and Fridthor Eydal, we now know that the aircraft was a Hurricane Mk II (Z4607) of Fighter Flight 1423, and that the pilot was Sergeant Herbert Arthur VERRELLS, aged 19, of Leigh-on Sea. For his CWGC entry please click here

    The RAF had sent a flight of ten Hawker Hurricanes to Iceland in 1941 to replace a squadron of obsolete Fairey Battles of 98 Squadron, at the insistence of General Curtis, who had no other means of combat air support. Flight 1423 was established using pilots and personnel from 98 Squadron - which was disbanded on 15th July - and maintained eight aircraft and two spares. On the morning of 23rd September 1941 two aircraft were scrambled at RAF Reykjavik - now REYKJAVIK INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT to intercept a German aircraft which had been spotted over South West Iceland. Hurricane Z4607 was last seen climbing into clouds and is believed to have crashed into Mount ESJA at about 09:45 hours. The Flight was disbanded in December 1941, American forces having arrived with the 33rd Pursuit Squadron, equipped with Curtiss Warhawk P-40's, and the remaining Hurricanes were returned to Britain. Sergeant VERRELLS was their only loss during this six month period.

    The last of the North side search parties who were under the CO (from A and D Companies) returned by 17:00 hours. The last of the South side parties (from B and C Companies) under Major Murray-Shireff returned by 22:30 hours. 2/Lt Keymer was taken to hospital suffering from exhaustion.

    Aircraftman 1st Class William Morton BOAL (943541) 1941-10-21 Iceland Reykjavik (Fossvogur) Cemetery

    https://www.warhistoryonline.com/war...pire-wave.html


    The Tragic Story: The Loss of the Empire Wave – every single man on the lifeboat suffered severe frostbite & had to have toes or limbs amputated

    In the early hours of the morning of the 2nd of October 1941 the unescorted CAM (Catapult aircraft merchant) ship the Empire Wave was torpedoed by the German U-boat U-562 about 500 miles east of Cape Farewell, Greenland.

    RAF Aircraftman 1st Class William Morton Boal was also rescued but died from exposure five days later. The Empire Wave carried a Hawker Sea Hurricane Mk Ia fighter for air defence that could be launched from the ship using a rocket-assisted catapult. This explains why airmen were on board.
