He flew on Coutances on D-Day and made it a hat-trick, bombing the railway yards in Paris on 7 June to notch his first 3 Sorties in three days. Having completed 5 Sorties by 15 June, Cornell joined No. 419 Squadron at Middleton St. George and flew his first Sortie in a Lancaster on 24 June, raiding Bamieres. As the months rolled on, Cornell honed his skills, firing on a Ju88 when attacking Vileneuve St George on 4 July and taking flak on Sortie 13 to Stuttgart on 25 July. 431 (Iroqouis) Squadron at Croft, Durham in August 1944 and flew his 20th Sortie to attack guns, tanks and troops in the Falaise area on 18 August. He was on the raid of 4 October to Bergen, Norway to attack the submarine pens, but it was his 28th Sortie on 6 December that would see Cornell called upon. Flying home from their target of Osnabruk, Squadron Leader Smith had their Lancaster flying level at 16,000ft at around 2200hrs. An enemy Ju88 attacked them from the port quarter, with Cornell getting in two bursts and the Rear Gunner, Pilot Officer Supergia getting off five bursts. A starboard corkscrew was called for and executed, with the Ju88 spotted to have fire pouring from its port engine – it was claimed probable destroyed (A Yorkshire Squadron – History of 431 RCAF, 1942-45, refers). Cornell flew his 36th and final Sortie on 12 March 1945, for a raid on Dortmund.

Throughout many operational sorties this officer has displayed a fine fighting spirit and outstanding enthusiasm to engage the enemy wherever possible. His cool, determined manner has done much to inspire the confidence in his crew. In December 1944, when returning from an attack against Osnabruck, his aircraft was engaged by a Junkers 88. His work has at all times set a sterling example to the rest of the squadron. DHist file 181.009 D. 20667 has recommendation, date uncertain but drafted by W/C R. Davenport when he had flown 30 sorties (156 hours ten minutes). Submission and sortie list as follows: 5 June 1944 – Houlgate (4.35) 6 June 1944 – Coutances (5.25) 7 June 1944 – Paris (4.30) 9 June 1944 – Le Mans (5.35) 15 June 1944 – St. Pol (4.20) 24 June 1944 – Bamieres (4.05) 27 June 1944 – Foret d?

His cool, determined manner has done much to enhance the morale of his crew. On the 6th December 1944, his aircraft was attacked by a Ju. 88 while returning from Osnabruck. Acting immediately on the Rear Gunner’s commentary and cooperating perfectly in the defensive team, he fired on the enemy aircraft, damaging it.

In December 1944, while returning from a mission to Osnabruck, his aircraft was attacked by a Junkers 88. This officer’s excellent directions enabled his pilot to manoeuvre the aircraft into a favourable position.

Davenport (undated) submitted when he had flown 29 sorties (150 hours 20 minutes), 5 June 1944 to 5 January 1945. // 5 June 1944 – Houlgate (4.20) // 6 June 1944 – Coutrances (4.25) // 9 June 1944 – Le Mans (5.35) // 15 June 1944 – St. Pol (4.20) // 24 June 1944 – Bamieres (4.05) // 27 June 1944 – Foret dEawt (4.45) // 4 July 1944 – Villeneuve St. George (6.15) // 6 July 1944 – Siracourt (5.20) // 7 July 1944 – Caen (4.40) // 18 July 1944 – Caen (4.25) // 20 July 1944 – LHay (4.00) // 25 July 1944 – Stuttgart (9.45) // 28 July 1944 – Hamburg (5.55) // 3 August 1944 – Bois de Casson (5.00) // 5 August 1944 – St. Leu dEsserent (5.25) // 7 August 1944 – Caen South (4.50) // 8 August 1944 – Foret Chantilly (5.20) // 9 August 1944 – Acquet (4.35) // 14 August 1944 – Falaise (4.05) // 18 August 1944 – Bremen (5.50) // 25 August 1944 – Brest (4.35) // 26 September 1944 – Calais (3.50) // 4 October 1944 – Bergen (6.35) // 14 October 1944 – Duisburg (5.35) // 16 November 1944 – Julich (5.35) // 30 November 1944 – Duisburg (7.00) // 6 December 1944 – Osnabruck (6.55) // 24 December 1944 – Dusseldorf (6.15) // 5 January 1945 – Hanover (6.05) // Pilot Officer Supergia has flown as a rear gunner on 29 operational sorties, at all times showing coolness and vigilance worthy of the highest praise. On 6th December 1944, whilst returning from Osnabruck, this officers aircraft was attacked by a Ju. 88 from the rear. In conjunction with the mid-upper gunner and pilot, Pilot Officer Supergia maneouvred his aircraft into a favourable position and opened fire on the fighter, registering hits and damaging the enemy. This officer handled his guns with cool determination, making split second decisions to guide his pilot and mid-upper gunner. I strongly recommend that Pilot Officer Supergias skill and courage be recognized by the award of the Distinguished Flying Cross. // RCAF Press Release No. 1301 dated 6 December 1944 from Sergeant John Badger, New Westminster, reads: // WITH RCAF BOMBER GROUP IN BRITAIN: – The Iroquois Squadron Lancaster was homebound after bombing Osnabruck, and to the JU. 88 pilot trailing it in the clouds, the unwieldy-looking giant seemed like easy revenge. At last, he manoeuvred into position and sped in to the attack from one side of the Canadian-built aircraft. // Immediately, the big machine dipped a wing and its nose in a corkscrewing movement of surprising agility. It was not for nothing that the pilot, Squadron Leader Harold Smith of New Westminster, B. Commanded a flight of Iroquois aircrews. // At the same time, the tail gunner, Pilot Officer Gus Supergia of Regina (2165 Francis Street), sent a long burst of tracers riveting into the heavily armed night fighter. It never had a chance to fire. As Supergia gave it three more bursts, his mate in the mid-upper turret rotated his guns into position and contributed two short bursts. Both gunners saw strikes rattling on the Junkers. A spot of fire, showed on one of its twin engines, spread swiftly. The Nazi sheered away in a dive, well aflame. Since it disappeared into thick cloud below, it has only been claimed as probably destroyed. INFO ON THE PILOT.

DHist file 181.009 D. 20667 has recommendation dated 10 September 1944 when he had flown 21 sorties (109 hours 30 minutes), 5 June to 25 August 1944. DFC submission as follows: // This officer, a captain of an aircraft, has carried out 21 operational sorties over enemy territory and has attacked such heavily defended targets as Bremen, Stuttgart and Hamburg. Through his cheerfulness and excellent qualities of leadership, he has been an example which his flight has been able to look up to with pride and themselves endeavour to equal. // In recognition of the leadership and determined effort on his part to carry out all operational efforts no matter the difficulties together with the “esprit de corps” this officer has inculcated into all personnel directly under his command, I strongly recommend the award of the Distinguished Flying Cross. // The sortie list was as follows: // 5 June 1944 – Houlgate (4.35, second pilot) // 6 June 1944 – Coutrances (4.20, second pilot) // 8 June 1944 – Le Mans (5.35) // 14 June 1944 – St. Paul (4.25) // 24 June 1944 – Bamieres (4.05) // 27 June 1944 – Foret de Nieppe (4.45) // 4 July 1944 – Villeneuve St. George (6.15) // 6 July 1944 – Siracourt (5.20) // 7 July 1944 – Caen (4.40) // 18 July 1944 – Caen (4.25) // 20 July 1944 – LHey (4.00) // 25 July 1944 – Stuttgart (9.25) // 28 July 1944 – Hamburg (5.55) // 3 August 1944 – Bois de Cassan (5.00) // 5 August 1944 – St. Leu dEsserent (5.25) // 7 August 1944 – South Caen (4.50) // 8 August 1944 – Chantilly (5.20) // 9 August 1944 – Acquet (4.35) // 14 August 1944 – Falaise (4.10) // 18 August 1944 – Bremen (5.50) // 25 August 1944 – Brest (4.35). NOTE: DHist file 181.009 D. 20667 has recommendation for an AFC dated 25 January 1945 submitted by W/C R. By then he had flown 29 sorties (156 hours five minutes), 5 June to 30 November 1944. AFC not approved but submission transcribed for the record. Additional sorties flown were: // 25 September 1944 – Calais (3.50) // 4 October 1944 – Bergen (6.55) // 14 October 1944 – Duisburg (5.35) // 6 December 1944 – Osnabruck (6.55) // 16 November 1944 – Julich (5.35) // 30 November 1944 – Duisburg (7.00) // 24 December 1944 – Dusseldorf (6.15) // 5 January 1945 – Hanover (6.10) // This officer, a pilot, has shown himself to be an outstanding aircraft captain. Since being awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross he has vigorously applied himself in his job of Flight Commander. A natural leader, Squadron Leader Smith has given unstintingly of his time and energy to the training of new and younger crews. The outstanding success of his flight is a tribute to his organizing ability and untiring efforts. He has undertaken more than the role of Flight Commander, being looked upon by the whole squadron with respect as a guide and confidante. // In recognition of this officers resourcefulness and contributions to the technical efficiency of his squadron, I strongly recommend that he be awarded the Air Force Cross. // Notes: Assessed while instructing at No. 15 (Pilots) AFU, 5 June 1943 when he had flown 1,070 hours (370 in past six months). A loyal officer with a well developed sense of responsibility. A cheerful, pleasant personality. Lacks confidence in himself at present, and leadership is undeveloped. Hard work has resulted in good progress, but he has not risen above his contemporary officers due to a lack of forcefulness of character. A reliable officer who may develop well with more responsibility and experience. // Assessed while instructing at No. 15 (Pilots) AFU, 2 February 1944, when he had flown 1,363 hours (190 in past six month). Loyal and tactful, with a quiet power of command, which is quite effective. This officers conduct has been first class, and he has reacted well to the responsibility, which he has recently been given. His early service was rather colourless, but he has made excellent progress in the past 6-9 months. // Application for Operational Wing dated 24 April 1945 claimed 35 sorties (199 hours 20 minutes), 3 June 1944 to 7 April 1945. // A summary of his flying to 31 December 1956 lists the following types and times – Lancaster (545 hours five minutes), Canso (231.25), Otter (32.10), Norseman (26.55), Dakota (162.00), North Star (32.40), Halifax (104.10), Wellington (94.15), Ventura (13.00), S-51 (2.00), Beechcraft (74.15), Oxford (1,140.10), Anson (119.15), Majister (38.05), Tiger Moth (63.10) and T-33 (4.20). // Training: Interviewed in Vancouver, 3 December 1940. A fine, clean cut young man of good presence and personality. Keen, aggressive, intelligent and conscientious. Has brother has armament officer with eleven years experience. He should take a refresher course in Maths, Physics and English, and with these complete should make a very good pilot. Used to robust sports and likes them. 4 ITS, 15 July to 16 August 1941. Courses in Mathematics (73/100), Armament, practical and oral (93/100), Signals (98/100), Hygiene and Sanitation (32/40), Drill (83/100) and Law and Discipline (54/60).

Discharged end of war 11/11/18, supplied with some copy paperwork, service details, etc for further research. ARTISTS RIFLES The regiment was established in 1859, part of the widespread volunteer movement which developed in the face of potential French invasion after Felice Orsini’s attack on Napoleon III was linked to Britain. The group was organised in London by Edward Sterling, an art student, and comprised various professional painters, musicians, actors, architects and others involved in creative endeavours; a profile it strove to maintain for some years. It was established on 28 February 1860 as the 38th Middlesex (Artists’) Rifle Volunteer Corps, with headquarters at Burlington House. Its first commanders were the painters Henry Wyndham Phillips and Frederic Leighton. The unit’s badge, designed by J. Wyon, shows the heads of the Roman gods Mars and Minerva in profile. Until 1914 the regimental full dress uniform was light grey with white facings, silver buttons and braid. This distinctive uniform dated from the regiment’s foundation as a volunteer unit. After World War I standard khaki was the normal dress. The Artists Rifles was a popular unit for volunteers. It had been increased to twelve companies in 1900 and was formed into three sub-battalions in 1914, and recruitment was eventually restricted by recommendation from existing members of the battalion. It particularly attracted recruits from public schools and universities; on this basis, following the outbreak of the First World War, a number of enlisted members of The Artists Rifles were selected to be officers in other units of the 7th Division. This exercise was so successful that, early in 1915, selected Artists officers and NCOs were transferred to run a separate Officers Training Corps, in which poet Wilfred Owen trained before posting to the Manchester Regiment, the remainder being retained as a fighting unit. Over fifteen thousand men passed through the battalion during the war, more than ten thousand of them becoming officers. The battalion eventually saw battle in France in 1917 and 1918. Casualties suffered by both members of this battalion and amongst officers who had trained with The Artists Rifles before being posted to other regiments were 2,003 killed, 3,250 wounded, 533 missing and 286 prisoners of war. Ex-Members of the Regiment won eight Victoria Crosses (though none did so while serving with the Regiment), fifty-six DSOs and over a thousand other awards for gallantry.
