615 Sqn, Feb 15th, 1941 help requestI have a file done by Tony Wood listing the Fighter Command activity in 1941 and which says that two Hurricane I of 615 Sqn RAF took off at 1140 hrs on 15 February 1941 and that BOTH were shot down off Blankernberge by German fighters. Plt Off D G A Stewart was killed aboard Hurricane I P3231, while Sgt A C Fotheringham (who was flying Hurricane I V7651) was captured. Two German pilots claimed Hurricane this day off Ostende, Oblt Karl-Heinz Leesman of 2./JG 52 at 1320 hrs (his 15th kill of a total of 37) and Fw Heinrich-Wilhelm Ahnert of 3./JG 52 at 1345 hrs (his first of a total of 57).

615 Sqn, Feb 15th, 1941 help requestHello, Correct spelling is Jocelyn MILLARD (same first name as mine, the reason why I clearly remember it). I exchanged a couple of letters with him years ago. In the Squadron ORB, the morning mission is described as a "mosquito". There were three pilots involved, who took off at 1030 : F/O STEWART in P1321, Sgt WAGHORN in V3716, Sgt FOTHERINGHAM in V7651. WAGHORN forced-landed and the other two were missing. 8 pilots took off at 1040 for a patrol over Maidstone at 15 000 ft. They landed at 12:15 and 12:30. The afternoon mission is described as a patrol, not a Rhubarb. Carried out by seven pilots, over Tenterden at 15 000 ft. MILLARD was flying P2754. W/C HOLMWOOD flew both patrols, both in V7119.
