"This is the story of a man who was determined to fly and achieved his ambition when he was accepted for pilot training by the RAF in 1934. He flew in the Battle of Britain and was one of the few fighter pilots to shoot down Luftwaffe bombers at night in a single-engine day fighter. He subsequently flew many occupations over Occupied Europe, was shot down on four occasions, and was awrded nine British and foreign decorations. He retired from the RAF in 1952 when he moved to Australia to join the Weapons Research Establishment in Adelaide, eventually becoming the Range Controller at the Missile Testing Ground, Woomera. He reluctantly retired in 1982 after reaching 65 years of age. With his usual zest for life, he bought a sheep farm which he ran with his son for a number of years before eventually retiring. He retirement wias spent with his wife initially at Robe, South Australia, then alternating between Australia and England where they continued to attend many reunions of 'Old Boys'. He passed away in Australia on 18th September 2004".
