Fred volunteered for the RAF in 1938 and after training was sent to 19 Squadron at Duxford with its newly acquired Spitfires and this is an ‘Erk’s Eye’ view of the Battle of Britain and subsequent RAF operations in various operational theatres.
He was ‘Grumpy’ Unwin’s armourer, though one of the most famous images of the Battle of Britain shows Fred re-arming ‘Jimmy’ Jennings’ Spitfire at Fowlmere in August 1940 (see front cover).
An interesting perspective on the Battle of Britain with some collectable Battle of Britain signatures from the book launch in 2006.
