When P/O James E "N....r" Marshall of No 85 Squadron RAF returned to RAF Debden on 18 August 1940, he was challenged by S/L Peter W Townsend for taking off without orders. Marshall admitted that he could not resist following in Hurricane Mk I VY-D (P3649), nor could he resist ramming a He 111(prop 7./KG53) when out of ammunition, The enemy aircraft was assessed as probably destroyed and the sortie was subsequently legitimised by entering him as Yellow Two in the ORB.
