Privacy Statement The Airmen’s Stories – P/O D W Hogg

 

Douglas William Hogg of Thornliebank, Glasgow must have already had some flying experience when he joined the RAF on 1st February 1940 with a direct-entry RAFVR commission as he joined 25 Squadron at Martlesham Heath ten days later.

Hogg shared in destroying a Ju88 on 12th August.

He was killed on 3rd September 1940 when he was shot down in error over North Weald in daylight by a Hurricane of 46 Squadron, flown by F/Lt. AC Rabagliati. At this stage of the war Blenheims were often mis-identified as Ju88’s.

His gunner, Sgt. E Powell, baled out, unhurt. The Blenheim, L1512, crashed near Greenstead Green, Essex.

Hogg was 23. He is buried in Eastwood Cemetery, Glasgow.
