    Hugh ‘Cocky’ Dundas was a Battle of Britain fighter ace.  He was Douglas Bader’s wingman, led a Spitfire wing in the invasions of Sicily and Tunisia and became the youngest ever Group Captain in the RAF at the age of 24.  After a distinguished post war business career he was knighted in 1987 and died in 1995.

    This book is also signed by Denis Crowley-Milling who flew with Bader’s 242 Squadron during the Battle of Britain and later with the Tangmere Wing.  After being shot down and successfully evading capture, he returned to operations commanding a Typhoon squadron and went on to achieve post-war high command.

    A great Battle of Britain memoir with two excellent signatures.
