    This is my late father. Please correct this entry. He never flew in Spitfires – this should read Hurricane/Typhoon. I have all my father’s log book records, RAF photos, which I can always include on the website if you wish. We also have a full story from the French Underground when my father had to bail out due to engine failure, and had to survive in France until the liberation of Paris. He underwent many trials during this time period. Let me know if you need any further information.
