    Group Captain Philip Reginald BARWELL (22062)

    Barwell took command of Biggin Hill in June 1941, as a Group Captain and sometimes flew as No. 2 to Sailor Malan on fighter sweeps.
    ...
    On 1st July 1942 Barwell, in company with S/Ldr. RW Oxspring, took off from Biggin Hill an hour before sunset on a standing patrol between Dungeness and Beachy Head. Control at Biggin Hill warned of unidentified aircraft in the area, which proved to be two Spitfires from Tangmere, flown by inexperienced pilots.

    Barwell, apparently oblivious to the warning, was attacked by one and shot down into the sea. Although Oxspring saw him trying to open his hood, Barwell did not bale out. Despite intensive searches, no trace of him was found.

    Barwell's body was later washed up on the French coast and he is buried in the Calais Canadian War Cemetery.

    the only remaining USA casualty has been answered by Simon in his post of 11.12.2019:

    Aircraftman 2nd Class Dennis John SHARPE (1219319) - the 'Croydon and the Second World War' memorial book records that he died while bird hunting and was struck by a ricochet from a companion's rifle.
