E.K. Dartnall RAF MIA

A newspaper story airman mystery. This article contains a few fanciful and presumably incorrect details about the Dartnall brothers as both being Spitfire pilots with multiple victories.

I am guessing a little bit of fiction because George Herbert Dartnall (RAFVR.917066) was a Wireless Op with 9 Sqn RAF and killed 9th Nov 1941.

My question - does anyone know the full name, service number and any service details for E.K. Dartnall? Also whether he and his brother were born in Australia, their father was living in Australia but was probably English?

I canít seem to find any reference to an RAF enlisted E.K. Dartnall through the usual sources London Gazette, CWGC, PoW lists so perhaps not RAF or incorrectly recorded with a different spelling of the surname?

Thanks in advance.

Regards, Drew
