Spitfire Collision over Kent 27 July 1941

Having just dipped back into some "unsolved" 1941 incidents for light relief from other projects, here is one such incident that has thus far eluded me.

On 27 July 1941 two Spitfires collided near Southfleet, Kent, 13.32 hours.

One pilot baled out. The other killed.

That is all I have. I have not picked it up in my various ORB trawls of 1941, nor has it surfaced elsewhere.

Can anyone add in any detail?

All I know is that this was extracted from some unknown source by the late Al Brown from Dartford Library. That is all that I have!

Very frustrating, so unless a typo or transcription error somewhere then it would appear we have some kind of incident on the date given.

Andy. I asked Henk Welting who has an extensive database on matching Pilot Losses to incidents,, he says he has


"No unaccounted 'pilots' for this date." i.e. 'He can't find the Pilot killed'

He also checked 27-7-194"2"; no result.

This must be wrong date or wrong aircraft or wrong result (i.e. 'pilot killed') for this incident

Thanks for your efforts.

A mystery.

Maybe a completely wrong date or year?
