FIGHTER BOY - Special Edition


Price per Unit (piece): £95.00


The Battle of Britain memoir of Hurricane pilot Barry Sutton, DFC.

At 23 years of age, Barry Sutton had experienced more than the average person experiences in a lifetime.

This book, based on a diary he kept during the Battle of Britain, covers September 1939 to September 1940 during which time based at North Weald one of Fighter Command's most important fighter stations, he shot down 3 German fighters and was shot down twice himself. It is also the story of his family, his wife whom he married in the midst of the epic air battle and who helped him survive the horrific injuries he sustained after bailing out of his burning Hurricane fighter plane.

After the Battle of Britain, Barry Sutton shot down 4 more enemy aircraft in the war in Burma and he later went on to serve in the RAF for 29 years. He ended his career as a Group Captain and lived out his retirement with his wife on the Isle of Jersey where he died in 1988.
