I have my next appointment on 11 October with Mr. Finney and will then get answers to the questions of Moggy and cheesehawk. On that occasion plan to photograph his medals (including DFC) and other memorabilia including his winged boot award. Any other questions are welcome. He also flew various models of spit's (including IX) up to 1945 during his last tours to Sicily and Italy.

Hey Biltongbru, great vids man, nice to see and hear from our Old hero's who fought the real thing. Sadly not many left.

Best regards from a ex Soth African now living in Australia. as they told us in the the army "Vasbyt boknaaiers" and like so many Jaapies we did.

P.S I would kill for some real biltong

Default Answers to questions

Hi

Today I visited Mr. Finney and he gave me this feedback:

Cheesehawk:

He said he never had an engine cut-out in early Hurricanes while dog-fighting due to negative G causing the float carburettor to shut down fuel supply. He said if they want to go down quickly he always rolled and then pull the stick back. The later Hurri's had fuel injection and thus wasn't an issue.

Bomb himself did not have much experience dog-fighting with Italians besides a few times with Macchis and G50's. They regarded the Italian aviators as brave and skilled but regarded the German pilots a bit better. He has a high respect for the MC 202 because of good manoeuvrability.

They once had a German pilot pow at their aerodrome but Bomb did not make contact with him.

Moggy:

Bomb cannot remember regarding the switching of tanks with the Hurri mkI start-up but says the Imp war museum once helped him with a question long after the war where they looked something up for him in their archive manuals.

Today I took pics of his medals and some other memorabilia:






Above is the caterpillar award given to all Allied members who bailed out and saved by an Irvine parachute and hence became a member of the caterpillar club?





Note the Winged Boot award: Given to members of the "late arrivals club" for pilots that got shot down and arrived back at the squadron after a long period of time.
