The Sunday Posts 2012/Battle of Britain Day.
Battle of Britain day is the anniversary of the heaviest day of fighting during the desperate fight to keep Nazi Germany at bay and this scene depicts the first 'scramble' experienced by 18 year old newby spitfire pilot Geoffrey Wellum in 1940. It captures the intensity of combat these often inexperienced and barely trained young men faced.
The excellent film is based on his book 'First Light'. The voice at the end of the scene is Geoffrey's.
