4 Page 4 The Aurora Newspaper, 14 Wing Greenwood, NS 404 Squadron Glimpses into the Past By: Major Chris Larsen One of the greatest rewards of working on historical research is filling in the gaps in stories that occurred so long ago. Even though it has been 70 years since the Buffalo Squadron s wartime exploits, we are still learning about the brave aviators and ground crew who sacrificed so much during a War that seems so foreign to our modern sensibilities. One has to ask why would so many young people have volunteered to serve, so far away from family and the comforts of home? Many books have The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader 2 Jan - 6 Jan Sun-Thurs 8pm Rated PG Happy New Year from the Staff of the Zedex Theatre $$ Save Money $$ Buy Pre-Paid Admission Cards 7 Admissions - $40 11 Admissions - $60 been written about this and we can only be thankful today that they did. 404 Squadron started a project two years ago to create a website that would take the Buffalo story to a wider audience, for general release, with no expectation of profit. This information has been released for all to share, because it is imperative that while veterans survive, their story should be made public. The creation of 404squadron.com was made possible through the hard work of Master Corporal Steve Mayo, who continues to be the webmaster. The site has received several thousand unique hits, and is a portal for families to discuss the wartime exploits of their loved ones. Through the website, families are able to contact the unit to share their stories and offer scans of personal photos. Recently, images of Sergeant Garfield Mackay were posted to the 404 Squadron historian by his family. Garfield Mackay was one of the original members of the Herd, arriving in 1941 when the Squadron formed at Thorney Island on the ~ Lost ~ Dec 23, 2010 Sony, black USB Thumb Drive, in or around Shoppers Drug Mart, Greenwood. Important pictures on it, please call Useful Links Sergeant Mackay with his family prior to shipping overseas. Flight Sergeant Mackay was to die on operations 5 November, south coast of England. The young pilot arrived on 1 June, 1941 and completed his first solo on a Bristol Blenheim less than two weeks later. On 5 November, 1941, while on operations, Flight Sergeant Mackay and his crew, Observer Sergeant Thomas Hedefine and Wireless Operator/ Air Gunner Flight Sergeant William Pearce, disappeared. Further recent research may have answered the question of what happened to this crew. Historian Halvor Sperrbund in Norway confirmed the following in reference to a query about 5 November, 1941, a single twin engined aircraft attacked the German M/V S/S Konsul Karl Fisser BRT, escorted by a Flak ship named Tornado, tactical no. V5105. This Flottilla, named 51 Vorpostenfl ottila, was stationed in Bergen, and their duty was convoy escort from Bergen to important convoys/ships sailing north up to Aalesund. The attack was executed approximately midway between Bergen and Aalesund towns, in the so called Stadthavet. The German Flakship V 5105 reported numerous hits on the attacking aircraft, which was seen to disappear, losing height rapidly, trailing heavy white smoke. In my opinion, this aircraft might very well have been EE/O from 404, as the Squadron operated from Royal Air Force Sumburgh at the time, thus covering targets at Stadthavet easily. Halvor goes on to mention, I can not be quite sure of this, but I suppose we are quite near the unfortunate conclusion for these brave Canadian Canadian Air Force website Community Gateway Site 14 Wing Greenwood Site Personnel Family Support Services airmen s fi nal fate. As part of the expansion of our wartime history, we are trying to place images next to the names of those who were lost; these photos help us to do that. We thank his family for the chance to remember Flight Sergeant Garfield Mackay. (Image: The newspaper clipping and photo were provided by the family) In June 2011, we will pay our respects to our Buffalo veterans and all members of the Herd who have served in the unit for the Canadian people for seven decades.

5 The Aurora Newspaper, 14 Wing Greenwood, NS Page (Buffalo) Squadron s Unsung Heroes From the north and western Ontario come these three members of the ground crew of the crack RCAF Buffalo Squadron of Coastal Command. (L to R) LAC M Cano, airframe mechanic from Fort William, LAC Carl Dubinsky, airframe mechanic and former hard-rock miner from Kirkland Lake, and LAC HL Allen, aero-engine mechanic from Noranda, PQ. By: Maj Chris Larsen To Canadian and British aircrew they were Erks, to the Aussies they were Wallahs and to others they were Penguins (i.e. flightless birds), but to all - these were the unsung heroes of the air force; the ground crew technicians. 404 Squadron was blessed to have one technician named Corporal WL Gowler, a gentleman who took the time to write in depth diary entries about his time with the Buffalo ground crew. There is no known picture of this diarist, but the picture he leaves for us of life on the Squadron is priceless. His Legion Calendar Sponsored by reminiscences start in October 1941, the early days of the unit - about the time that the Buffalos were making their first operational missions in the Bristol Blenheim. Gowler s writings speak of boredom, fear, incredible fatigue, pride and sorrow. He speaks of his friends, such as pilot Squadron Leader PH Foster lost on operations in May 1942, as well as AC1 DM Clark and AC2 N Leitch who were killed by a marauding German Ju88 that strafed their barracks in February He wrote faithfully about his pilots and his aircraft. Sadly, the massive majority of what is written about the RCAF and squadron life focuses on the aircrew, but to a man, these aircrew faithfully heaped blessings upon their technicians. This is still true today in that aircrew are acutely aware that their missions could not take place without the dedicated efforts of the technicians in whom they put their trust and thanks. There were dangers aplenty for the Erks. For example, the following comes from the Squadron history, A serious accident was narrowly avoided on 15 March: Had a very close call today as the boys had two cannons lying out in front of N (144) on a couple of boxes and one ~ January 2011 Office Bar Fax Sun Mon Tues Wed Thu Fri Sat 1 Events Subject to Change Without Notice LEVEE 11-1 SUPPER 5-6 Members & Guests Welcome!

Several maintainers lost their lives walking into airscrews (propellers) due to inattention, fatigue, or losing focus while the aircraft taxied at night around the crowded airfields. The following are ground crew members killed with 404 Squadron: On 2 September 1941, the unit had its first fatal accident when Blenheim L9394 piloted by Sergeant WE Dale crashed in a field about two miles from Castletown. Went out of control and spun into the ground. Along with the pilot, the gunner, Sgt EG Allen and technician, Corporal LW McKinlay, was killed. 8 January 1942, AC2 Stanley Leslie Gregory was killed when he walked into an airscrew; the accident was deemed to be the result of an error in judgment. A moment s inattention had cost a squadron member his life. 1 February 1942, AC1 DM Clark and AC2 N Leitch were killed by a Ju88 that strafed their barracks. 16 June 1942, AC1 Billy Dunbar was a passenger in a Bristol Blenheim; the pilot, and gunner were also killed in a dive during air to ground firing. The pilot could not pull out in time and crashed, finally landing about 50 out from shore in about 8 of water. On 3 September 1943, Business of the Week is Back!

Ernie and Marlene Deion Very bad happening today again as Frank Woolhouse was going on leave and caught a ride down to Leuchars in one of our new Beaus. The Beaufighter TFX had no sooner left the drome than the pilot started to do some low flying and struck the top of a house knocking off the chimneys which broke the tail off the plane which crashed killing all three in the plane. On 7 September 1943, Cpl Eddie J Ferrier was killed when a propeller struck him. The accident occurred on the perimeter of the aerodrome when an aircraft turned to taxi to the dispersal area. On 7 July 1944, Cpl RE Colwell was flying during a test flight in a Beaufighter when the aircraft lost speed over the airfield, rolled over on its back and crashed to earth, killing him and his pilot. In June 2011, 404 Squadron will be celebrating its 70 th birthday, along with 405, 413 and 415 Squadrons. VPI will also be celebrating its 45 th anniversary.
