Flight Lieutenant Lyn Bertram Madden
On 15th May 1943, 403 squadron R.C.A.F. lost two more young pilots while escorting a bombing mission to Poix.
Flight Lieutenant Lyn Bertram Madden had only joined 403 squadron on the 4th May, and was on his first sortie flying Spitfire Mk.IX, (BS246). He was last seen diving after a damaged Messerschmitt 109. Flight Lieutenant MacDonald called him back but there was no reply. His squadron mates tried to stay in the area, but were forced to take evasive action as they came under attack.
Rest in Peace Sir and thank you for your service.
