    One of the original ‘Ten Fighter Boys’ of 66 Squadron, Bobby Oxpring flew Spitfires throughout his wartime career starting with Dunkirk and then the Battle of Britain.  Apart from two brief rests from operational flying, he was one of that select band of fighter plots who flew throughout WWII, scoring over 13 victories and being awarded 3 DFC’s.  He died in 1989.

    A great signed Battle of Britain memoir.
