Re: S/Ldr George F. BROTCHIE - 39708.

'Wee Brotch' joined 111 Squadron in April 1941, becoming CO on 11 September. On 14-3-42 the squadron was operating from Debden, taking part in Wing practice. Two sections had got airborne, and Brotchie was leading the third onto the runway when his No 2, the Czech Sgt Zadrobilek*,( in R7192 ), inexplicably opened up and ran hard into the leader who was in BL429. Both Spitfires burst into flames with Brotchie being killed and the sergeant badly burned. The 111 record for the day notes that the Czech was, unlike so many of his tearaway companions, an excellent, and careful pilot, who had served with the squadron for a considerable time with no accidents. Brotchie was buried in his home town of Dundee.

I had a conversation with Rev. John Fulton, general secretary of the United Free Church, today.
He informed me that this Memorial is now in Newport Parish Church due to the closure of the United Free Church premises.
