Privacy Statement The Airmen’s Stories – P/O P A Harris

 

Patrick Arthur Harris of Ash Vale, Surrey joined the RAFVR about July 1939 as an Airman u/t Pilot.

Called up on 1st September 1939, he completed his training and joined 111 Squadron at Drem on 29th September 1940. However this was an error. The posting signal was really for 3 Squadron but the ‘3’ was written in Roman numerals as III. Harris went on to 3 Squadron at Turnhouse the next day.

Harris was killed on 17th June 1941 as a Pilot Officer with 56 Squadron. His Hurricane IIa Z2664 was shot down by Me109’s on Circus 14.

Harris was 20 and is commemorated on the Runnymede Memorial, panel 33.
