Another gripping insight into the exploits of the famous 92 Squadron. Brian Kingcome was 92 squadron’s acting CO throughout much of the Battle of Britain. He states:
‘I always regarded 92 squadron as my personal property. I led it through, what was to me, the most exhilarating and treacherous part of the war, the Battle of Britain. I gained and lost many good friends and in front line operations I was with 92 longer than any other squadron’.
An excellent posthumously published autobiography with a scarce signature.
