World War Two Medal group to a pilot from the Fleet Air Arm who was killed in action during attacks on enemy targets in on 9th December 1944. The group were posthumously awarded to Temporary Sub Lieutenant (A) Leonard Anthony Cole R. Leonard Cole came from Eastbourne in Sussex and was 23 years old when he was killed. Leonard was a pilot of a Barracuda II in 828 Squadron based on the aircraft carrier HMS Implacable. 828 squadron were a torpedo bomber reconnaissance squadron who had earlier taken part in the attacks on the Turpitz as part of Operation Goodwood. Tirpitz and the Far East[edit]. 828 Squadron was re-formed as a torpedo bomber reconnaissance squadron in March 1944. Equipped with 12 Barracuda IIs they joined the 2nd Naval Torpedo Bomber Reconnaissance Wing and joined the Home Fleet aboard HMS Implacable in August that year. [2] They briefly transferred to HMS Formidable in August 1944 and carried out attacks on the German battleship Tirpitz as part of Operation Goodwood. Interestingly enough, there are photos of HMS Implacable taken from the support carried HMS Trumpeter on 9th December 1944, the actual day that Leonard Cole was killed in action on the Imperial War Museum website. There are also photos of the pilots who took part in the attacks on that day and a photo showing damage to another aircraft who took part in the same action. One is titled – Sub Lieut (A) R K L Yeo RNVR, of Exeter, examining flak damage to aileron of his Wildcat on returning from the attack. Copies of these photos shown above and can be seen on the Imperial War Museum website. The damage shown to this other aircraft which took part in the attacks would confirm the cause of the loss of Leonard’s aircraft. Leonard Cole is commemorated on the Solent Memorial as well as Eastbourne Grammer School memorial where had had been a pupil. Worth of more research.

World War Two Casualty Medal Group to 909137 Gunner Ronald Hubert Hall of 426 Battery, 107 (The South Notts Hussars) Regiment, Royal Horse Artillery who was killed in action during the defence of Tobruck on 4th December 1941. Gunner Hall was born in Derby and lived in West Bridgford in Nottingham. Casualty Medal Slip confirming name and the award of 4 medal. Original medal box sent to Mrs F. Hall (Florence Mabel Hall his mother). Gunner Hall was serving with the 426 battery of the 107th Regiment S. A who were an anti aircraft battery. This testimonial is from another soldier who was serving with the regiment at the same time and recalls his experiences at around the time of Gunner Hall’s death. After a spell defending the Suez Canal, the Regiment moved to be part of the Trobruk defences in April 1941. I believe the following events took place during late November and early December 1941. We tried to break out but we got hammered. The German 88s fired airburst and, I dont know, the gun I was on must have been one of the unlucky guns. We had four guns, number one, I was number two, three and four. Everything there was firing just where we were and we started off firing, all of a sudden there was an airburst and I was putting the switches on doing a level with all the bubbles when I saw Bill sat on my right. I said are you alright, he replied that hed been hit in the knee. I looked at him , it was a lot more than a hit in the knee and I got out of the seat to see what I could do and he just went out. We didnt have stretcher bearers, there was nobody there when it came to medical attention. I just dragged him out, laid him down, fetched one of the few medical blokes that were. Then the next round came up, put the switch on and put the range on, old Bill would normally have done that. Then another shell came over and I thought thats close, then I looked round to my left to the two of them that were there, they didnt move. I got up to look at them and both of them had been hit pretty bad , both of them had been killed. All the other guns more or less got away with it. The next round that came over, I was putting the range on, the switch , loading it, I was the only one left and there was no sign of anyone coming, reinforcements or anything, and another round came over and lifted me out of the seat! I went flat on my back and the next thing I knew I was moved out. I finished up in one of the field hospitals that we had but I wasnt actually wounded, only knocked unconscious. A complete and interesting group worthy of more research. Please let me know if you need any additional photos or details. Please see my other listings of British and foreign Medals and Militaria.
