Frederick Norman Hargreaves joined the RAF on a short service commission in June 1939. After completing his training he was posted to 92 Squadron at Croydon on 22nd March 1940.

 

 

Having lost his bearings during night flying from Bibury on 27th August Hargreaves baled out and landed at Red House Farm, Blaxhall. His aircraft, Spitfire P9548, crashed near Marlesford, Suffolk.

Hargreaves failed to return from a combat over Dungeness on 11th September and was reported ‘Missing’. His Spitfire, K9793, is presumed to have gone into the sea.

He was 21 and is commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial, panel 8.
