Noel Proctor Warden

Noel Proctor Warden was killed on October 1, 1941. He is the second pilot on the left.


This is all the information I found on the Internet.

Name: WARDEN, NOEL PROCTOR
Initials: N P
Nationality: United Kingdom
Rank: Pilot Officer
Regiment/Service: Royal Air Force Volunteer Reserve
Unit Text: 91 Sqdn.
Date of Death: 01/10/1941
Service No: 100592

Additional information: Son of Norman Charles and Eva Warden, of Andover, Hampshire.
Casualty Type: Commonwealth War Dead
Grave/Memorial Reference: Panel 35.
Memorial: RUNNYMEDE MEMORIAL

He made a number of claims:

The book above has his middle initial wrong. TMotBoB has him joining the RAFVR in May 1939, called up at the start of the war, and joining 610 Sqn in 6 Oct 1940. Neither that book nor FCL have his Spitfire serial, shot down during ASR escort.

Why am I telling you all this…?

Because I am going to meet Dennis Connolly this Thursday and talk about 91 Squadron and Jean Demozay.

We will also talk about the Dieppe Raid. Dennis Connolly was there on August 19, 1942!

  1. Hi – I hope it’s okay for me to comment. I took part in a 10km race on Sunday 3rd September called the Spitfire 10K. It was organised by the RAF Museum and held at RAF Cosford. Each runner was given the name of a pilot who was lost in the Battle of Britain to run in memory of. I was honoured to run with Sergeant Warden’s name on my vest (Noel Proctor Warden). I wasn’t able to find out very much about him prior to the race but I have written a blog post about the experience. If anyone is interested in reading it, it can be found here: https://runningupthathillweb.wordpress.com/2017/09/07/the-first-race-is-the-sweetest/
    I’m particularly hoping that Sergeant Warden may have some descendants who will visit this page in future.
