Privacy Statement The Airmen’s Stories – P/O N N Campbell

 

Norman Neil Campbell, of St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada joined the RAF in January 1939 on a short service commission. After completing his flying training, Campbell arrived at 6 OTU on 5th April 1940, converted to Hurricanes and joined 32 Squadron in late May. On 3rd June he moved to 242 Squadron at Biggin Hill.

Five days later he flew to France with the squadron to help cover the rearguard actions being fought by the British Army as it retreated to the Atlantic coast. Campbell flew back on 18th June. With no maps, he ran out of fuel and made a forced-landing on a beach near Minehead.

 

 

By mid-July 242 was operational again and on 18th September Campbell claimed a Ju88 destroyed and shared in shooting down two others.

On 17th October 1940 Campbell was in Hurricane V6575 which crashed into the sea after possibly being hit by return fire from a Do17 engaged off Yarmouth. His body was later recovered and he was buried on 31st October in Scottow Cemetery, Norfolk. He was 27.
