Honour Roll

211 Squadron Honour Roll 1939—1945

Summary
Over the course of the war, the Squadron’s total personnel
strength ranged from about 400 to about 500 or so. The number of aircrew varied according to aircraft type and theatre, from around 50 or so to around 100.

There are now 320 men recorded on the roll below. Of these, 119 were aircrew, missing or killed in action or lost in flying accidents from 1939 to 1945. In the Far East from 1942, at least 186 personnel died in captivity, most of them groundcrew captured in Java in March 1942.

Others still, whether aircrew or groundcrew, died of illness or in other accidental circumstances. The following table gives a bald summary of the known losses of the Squadron during the war. Overall, the average age of the men who lost their lives was just under 26 years.

Accuracy of the roll
The
Commonwealth War Graves Commission provides a very great service in its maintenance of war graves and memorials, and through its research and casualty record service. The Commission’s resources are very comprehensive but in the nature of things, not free of error. It is not practical for me to access all the original personnel records, as they are held by the Services or Archives of various Commonwealth countries and not always available for release. These records, too, may be in error, as may be other published sources.

There may therefore be errors in the roll as presented and it may very well be incomplete. Readers may be distressed by the sheer size of the roll, or worse, by any errors or omissions. Still, a record of this sort seemed to be a very important part of the 211 Squadron story, whatever the labour in its compilation and whether or not the result be imperfect. Perhaps readers will let me know of any amendments that may be needed.

Roll entries
The roll entries, in order, are: Name, Service number and decoration; rank or classification; mustering or duty where known; date of death (day, month, year); Service, age (where recorded); and War Cemetery or War Memorial name in shortened form. Aircrew are indicated by their mustering.

At the time, the frequent Air Ministry Casualty Communiques used a set of headings which distinguished broadly between losses in action vs those on active service, for example:

    Killed in action; Missing believed killed in action, Missing in action: due to flying operations against the enemy;
    Killed on active service: ground casualties due to enemy action, non-operational flying casualties, fatal accidents
    Died on active service: natural deaths.

The Communiques are still to be found in Library collections of contemporary newspapers and journals like Flight, or in the on-line Flight Archive. In the roll below, where known, a brief but slightly more descriptive note of the circumstance of a man’s death is shown in the Comments column, for example, those who died in captivity are noted as PoW, while the many who remain missing are so noted.

As far as I am able to tell from the records, all the men in the roll below were associated with the Squadron in the circumstances of their death, though not necessarily as Squadron members:

    Sgt Allan, the Squadron’s first casualty of the war, was in fact killed in transit to his 211 Squadron posting while taking part in a Wellesley Delivery Flight to the Middle East, when Wellesley I K7754 was lost in bad weather off the French coast with K7740

    W/Cdr Coote and S/L Cryer, killed in action on the terrible Easter Sunday raid in 1941, were of the Western Wing Headquarters staff in Greece (OC and Deputy OC respectively) who, having ordered the unescorted raid, then volunteered to take part in it as Observers

    F/O Froggatt and his crewmates Sgt JDM Prentice (Observer) and F/Sgt DA Young were all killed in action on an operation with 11 Squadron over Libya in early January 1942, however, the CWGC records all three men as 211 Squadron members. They may have been attached to 11 Squadron, already posted to 211 Squadron, or incorrectly recorded: sadly, not resolvable at present.

    F/Sgt Jack Richmond was a very experienced 211 Squadron Observer. He had risen through the ranks from Cpl WOp/AG in nearly four years on operations in the Western Desert, Greece and Palestine, decorated with the DFM for bravery after carrying out 58 operations. He was killed in action with an Australian crew of 11 Squadron on 25 January 1942, while on an operation over Libya. Their Blenheim IV V5899 suffered flak damage and forced landed with engine failure, the RAAF pilot and gunner both surviving. Like Frogatt and crew, Richmond is recorded by the CWGC as 211 Squadron, his attachment to 11 Squadron unclear.

    Cpl Sigston died in the United Kingdom in 1942 at a time when the Squadron had been disbanded in the Far East, his exact attachment at present unclear.

For some of these men it has been possible to write a page, and links to these are shown in the usual way. Where possible, corrections have been incorporated from original source material.

Those who perished as Far East Prisoners of War under the Japanese are also shown on an additional roll (as are those who survived)

Remembered with honour

Commonwealth War Cemeteries
The war dead of the Squadron rest halfway around the globe, from England to Queensland. This is so, thanks to the post-war work of the RAF Missing Research and Enquiry Service (and its Search and War Graves recovery parties) and the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, whose grim tasks at the end of the war were to recover, identify and decently inter the dead. In many cases all this was achieved, even for those lost in difficult circumstances. Others, though recovered, remained unidentified, while many remain lost or missing beyond hope of recovery.

These men rest in the War Cemeteries (or are remembered in the War Memorials) kept in perpetuity by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission around the world, as follows:

    Alamein Memorial, El Alamein, Egypt
    Aleppo War Cemetery, Syria
    Ambon War Cemetery, Indonesia
    Benghazi War Cemetery, Libya
    Chittagong War Cemetery, Bangladesh
    City of London Cemetery, Essex, UK
    Delhi War Cemetery, India
    El Alamein War Cemetery, Egypt
    Jakarta War Cemetery, Indonesia
    Kranji War Cemetery, Singapore
    Kanchanaburi War Cemetery, Thailand
    Khartoum War Cemetery, Sudan
    Kirkee War Cemetery, India
    Labuan War Cemetery, Malaysia
    Lutwyche War Cemetery, Brisbane, Queensland
    Maynamati War Cemetery, Bangladesh
    Madras War Cemetery, Chennai, India
    Northern Territory Memorial, Adelaide River War Cemetery, NT
    Phaleron War Cemetery, Greece
    Ranchi War Cemetery, India
    Rangoon War Cemetery, Myanmar
    Runnymede Memorial, Surrey, UK
    Singapore Memorial, Singapore
    Taiping War Cemetery, Malaysia
    Taukkyan War Cemetery, Myanmar
    Thanbyuzayat War Cemetery, Myanmar
    Yokohama War Cemetery, Japan

More information
Anyone seeking more information might like to check the
Commonwealth War Graves Commission website. There the Debt of Honour Register can be searched or downloaded for more complete information than is practical to show here. The work of the Commission and its philosophy are beautifully recorded in Remembered: The History of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission by Summers and Harris (Merrell and CWGC 2007).

Sources
This roll of the Squadron’s World War II dead has been compiled from information supplied by the
Commonwealth War Graves Commission, extended or reconciled with additional records from the Australian War Memorial Roll of Honour; the 211 Squadron Operations Record Book (AIR 27/1302 and AIR 27/1303); my father Cyril Clark’s Flying Log Book and Aircrew in Greece notes; the Flying Log Books and/or diaries of W Baird, R Cuttiford, JB Keeping; the RAAF Casualty files of T McInerney and NH Oddie; and Peter Spooner’s India & Burma casualty list. For the Far East Prisoners of War, the entries have been reconciled with Anthea Beckett’s Java Index and with L&P Stubbs Unsung Heroes of the RAF: The Far East Prisoners of War. Some other casualties have been reconciled with or amplified from Malcolm Barrass’ fine Air of Authority site.
