Total Commitment by Ivan Berryman. (P)


Total Commitment by Ivan Berryman. (P)

On the afternoon of 5th September 1940, Spitfires of 41 Sqn intercepted a large formation of Heinkel 111 bombers and their escorts over the Thames estuary, en route for London. Flying N3162 as Red 2, Flight Lieutenant Eric Lock attacked the bombers head on as they began to turn north. In a fraught combat, Lock was to destroy two He.111s and a Bf.109 on that single mission, setting him on course to become the highest scoring ace in the RAF during the Battle of Britain with sixteen confirmed victories and one shared. His final total at the end of the war was twenty six kills confirmed and eight probables.

Original combat report by Eric Lock from 5th September 1940 :

15.00 hrs, 41 Squadron. Two HeIII and an Me109, about 15,000ft over Shppey.

I was Red 2, 41 Squadron flying in formation with the rest of the squadron when we intercepted a formation of enemy aircraft. We attacked the bombers first. After we engaged, we broke away to port, then I saw Red 1 shoot down an Me109 which exploded in mid-air. It then developed into a dogfight. I then engaged an enemy HeIII which crashed into the river and I followed this down. I climbed back to 8,000 feet and saw an enemy HeIII which had left the main formation. I engaged same and his starboard engine set on fire. I closed in to about 75 yards and fired two long bursts and smoke came from the fuselage. The enemy aircraft then put his wheels down and started to glide. I then stopped firing and followed him down. I was then attacked by an Me109 who fired at me from below and wounded me in the leg. As he banked away he stallturned. I fired at him and he exploded in mid-air. I then followed the bomber down who landed on the sea about 10 miles from the first one in the mouth of the river. I circled round a boat which was at hand. I also flashed my downward light - I saw the boat go to the enemy aircraft. I was then joined by Red 3. On our return we saw the first bomber which was still floating. I saw a small rubber boat.
