AIR COMMODORE JOHN ELLACOMBE - SIGNED CARD

John Ellacombe flew Hurricanes with 151 Squadron during the Battle of Britain, scoring several victories, but also having to bale out of his fighter on several occasions, on each he was initially thought to be German and he wryly noted "In two days a farmer had attempted to kill me, the Home Guard had shot at me and a Policeman had tried to kill me - quite apart from the Germans! I wondered whose side I was on"

He later joined 487(NZ) Squadron flying the superb Mosquito XIII and he directly supported the D-Day landings flying fighter-Bomber Missions over and beyond the beachheads.

This is a nice Signed Card in Blue Ink.
