An Early Bath by Ivan Berryman. (GL)


An Early Bath by Ivan Berryman. (GL)

In the early evening of the 18th of July 1941, following coastguard reports of an enemy aircraft in their vicinity, two Hurricanes of 87 Sqn on detachment at the Airfield at St Mary's, Scilly Isles were scrambled to an area some 30 miles south west of the Scilly Isles where they intercepted a lone Heinkel He111. Alex Thom was the first to attack, his windscreen being sprayed with oil as his rounds tore into the Heinkel's starboard engine. Breaking away, his wingman F/O Roscoe now took over the chase, but the German bomber was already mortally wounded and was observed to alight onto the sea where upon the crew immediately took to their life raft as the Heinkel began to sink beneath the waves just minutes later, Thom circled overhead until he saw the motor launch arrive to pick up the German aircrew before returning back to St Mary's.

Official combat report of this event, written by Alex Thom :

On receiving a report from the coast guard at St Agnes that a hostile machine was south west of the islands proceeding west, I took off at 1825 and sighted the enemy machine 30 miles west south west of the Scillies steering a southerly course, and flying at 1,000ft. I attacked from astern, and at 200 and 150 yards respectively fired two bursts of 3 seconds. As a result of these bursts a large amount of oil came out of the enemys starboard engine and completely covered my windscreen while pieces of metal could be seen dropping off the enemy machine. Being now unable to see through my windscreen I broke away and F/O Roscoe then attacked the Heinkel as it dived to sea level leaving a trail of black smoke and an oily streak in the sea. Subsequently we both made quarter attacks but I could not see to aim properly although I tried to remove the oil by using the de-icing pump. From the last of these however, I looked round to see the Heinkel pancake on the sea and the crew take to their dinghy before the machine sank about a minute later. Having stayed over the dinghy for some time while bearings were taken, I returned to base and landed at 1935 hrs.
