Achtung!-Achtung! – Ein Spitfire..

The curse of the skies for Germany

As Germany tries to stifle the British with their deadly onslaught in the early years of the second world war… An  attempt that in its self was stifled by our Heroic Boys in the Battle of Britain, with their most Derring-Do in the iconic Spitfire with its own distinct sound, a sound of Merlin Engines that nearly eighty years later is still heard and most importantly still recognised, as even today, the roar of the merlin engine is heard burbling through the sky, all faces of the free Great British public look to the sky, to catch a glimpse of a man-made icon, as the legend lives on… Image result for auxlilery air forceWith legends of the sky comes the heroics of those that actually flew these wonders of the sky…  We must also never forget the unsung hero’s of War Time England, and those that flew the Spitfire to and from the airfields, these are the women of the Air Auxiliary Service, with the last survivor dying this is truly the end of an era…

Spitfire-Mark-III

Ok this is somewhat different, to appear on the iconic spitfire, but its a tale worth viewing from “opposite eyes”

And another of our lost boys has been located and hopefully will return one day, to be further honoured & remembered by a new generation…

Sad Day….

It is a sad day, when a workman steals off an old man of ninety plus years of age, but when they steal a photo for goodness sake, a photo of such great significance it makes you realize this is a sad world with sad people who are selfish enough to inflict such sorrow… As an update, as of the 24th December 2020, the RAF has given this hero a replacement photo, all be it without the signature’s, lets hope the original photo will be returned before he dies, but saying that, at least the replacement from the RAF is something, and what a wonderful gesture, once a family member always a family member…

One of Britain's last surviving Spitfire pilots, Edmund James, 98, said the photo of the aircraft (pictured) was a reminder of friends he lost during the war and was signed by fallen comrades

i would love to have the money to purchase as many of these war mementos and medals that come onto the market through auction or private sale, but leave them with the wives or husbands and only receive them once they have passed over, and them they would be put on display, telling each individual story of peoples lives, and what and how they performed whilst saveing Britannia from the jack-boot…

I know this is not anything Spitfire related but, can you imagine the chaos’s the boys flying our Spitfires would have done to the German fighters & bombers if the had a jet fighter plane
