Re: Flt Sgt Jammy Payne 501 Squadron 1940

Payne was not on 501 Sqn (as far as I can see) prior to them arriving in France, I can see him being asked to ferry a replacement Hurricane to France (in May 1940 - I believe he could have been on 92 Sqn) and he just hung around and ended up on Ops - I could see why he was called 'Jammy' by his fellow pilots and maybe this it why it has been so hard to identify him. Chris Shore in Aces High Vol 1 and 2 could not positively ID him. Probably the most noticeable 'Unknown Ace' left of 1940
