This is an incomplete list and a work in progress, which will be updated progressively. Please feel free to make suggestions or corrections in the comments section !

W3649 « SHEPLEY » (Mrs. Shepley) – PhotoP/O Douglas Shepley of 152 Squadron was reported missing after combat against Ju 88s on 12 August 1940. He was only 22. His mother and widow raised £5,700 in North Derbyshire and South Yorkshire to buy a Spitfire, which was to be Spitfire Mk Vb W3649. Tragically, his sister Jeanne had been killed on 17 October 1939 when the S Yorkshire was torpedoed, and his older brother George was killed on 31 May 1940 when his Lysander II of 16 Squadron was shot down in error over Dunkirk by Spitfires.

  1. A thread over on Flypast Historic Aviation forum a few years ago (2013) was regarding « Falkland Islands Spitfires », and mentioned that one of the ten paid for by the Falkland Islanders, was allocated to 602 Squadron.
    I Have a copy of the log books of S/L John Niven DFC* and a quick check of the Log Book for 1941 revealed that he flew X4615 during April, May and June of 1941.

    The list was:-
    Falkland Islands 1 – X4614 was a Mk1a and went initially to 66 squadron at Gravesend in October 1940 and then on to 92 squadron.
    2- was X4615. went to 616 squadron in October 1940 and then on to 610 squadron. (Although this is recorded elsewhere as « X4615. 610/602/61 OTU/ Cv VA/121/332/164/Cv PR.XIII. To Admiralty 5.3.44 »)
    3- X4617. Went to 616 squadron in October 1940 and then on to 65 squadron.
    4- X4616. went to 92 squadron in October 1940.
    5- X4622. Went to 222 squadron in November 1940.
    6- X4619. Went to 602 squadron. (Recorded elsewhere as « X4619. 58 OTU/73 OTU. SOC 27.7.44 »)
    7- X4620. Went to 611 Squadron.
    8- X4642. Went to 609 Squadron in October 1940.
    9- X4613. Went to 603 squadron in October 1940 and then on to 266 squadron.
    10- X4643. Went to 72 squadron in October 1940.
