Thahnks mate, lots of interviews with both sides pilots! Lotsd of primary source material from the men who were there.

I especially like the fact that I can put names from books to faces.

'Cocky' Dundas flew Spitfires with Johnny Johnson throught the first half of the war and is mentioned a lot in his book 'Wing Leader'. He gives insight into his experiences in this piece :-

Interesting interview in The Spitfire vid with Cyril Bamburger who was a 1940 Spitfire Battle of Britain pilot.

He stated that it was impossible to catch 109s as they headed back to France. He said that as he got behind them they would dive and leave the Spitfire behind.

The Spitfire at that time would suffer an engine cut-out with negative G as the Rolls Royce Merlin did not have fuel injection. The 109 had fuel injection.

Interesting account.

Best Regards,
