This site is dedicated to my Great Uncle. Roy did not make it through the Second World War. He went missing in Saro S36 Lerwick L7263 WQ-L, on 22 February 1941, flying out of Stranraer in Scotland. He was 29 years old.
A year earlier, the then Flt Sgt Fyfe, had an encounter with the Kriegsmarine on 20th of June 1940 in Lerwick L7260. He made an inconclusive attack on the source of torpedo trails.
Earlier he had flown in the first Consolidated PBY-4 Catalina P9630 to Invergordon Scotland, on early trials from the M.A.E.E Sea plane base at Felixstowe, Suffolk, England, where he was also stationed in 1939.
Pilot Officer, Ronald John Fyfe. 44549. 209 Squadron.
