Peter Norman Murton-Neale

(90401)

He joined the Royal Auxiliary Air Force and No.615 (County of Surrey) Squadron at its creation in 1937. He occupied briefly the functions of B Flight Commander after mobilization. On 13 May 1940, he took off in the evening for a patrol in the vicinity of Namur. A fight broke out with several Bf 110s and his aircraft (Hawker Hurricane Mk I L2035) was probably shot down by Leutnant Richard Marchfelder of Stab II./ZG 1, near Courrière. The unfortunate Peter N. Murton-Neale is killed. He was 23 years old and is now burried at the Courrière cemetery.
