Wing Commander Paul Farnes, tallest in this picture and the last surviving Battle of Britain 'ace', passed away at 101 years of age. W/Cdr Farnes flew a Hurricane during that fateful battle that decided the fate of Europe and the free world.

Thank you Sir, for helping ensure that this Dutchman can live in freedom. Never was so much owed by so many to so few.

I'll have a beer in your honor.

During the summer when I'm relaxing having cold beers in the back yard planting my garden. I put on some German music from my CD's .  I think of my late moms six uncles and her cousins who all perished fighting for the Fatherland. A couple of them were in the German  6th Army ,  the same Army that march though Paris when France fell  and the same Army that surrendered at Stalingrad .

He once fought in the skies for freedom. Now he can freely fly the skies for eternity. May he rest in peace.

I think I'll play a game in Blysca and mount the 303 Squadron camo in his honor. Thanks for sharing @Lert
