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.

A superb signed Battle of Britain memoir.
