about

RAF fighter pilot George Barclay kept a personal diary of his time flying Hurricanes and Spitfires in 1940–41, including his rare contemporary account of flying Hurricanes with 249 Squadron in the Battle of Britain. This revised and re-illustrated edition of a book originally published in 1976 features previously unseen photographs and ephemera from Barclay’s personal albums, as well as offering new insights into his evasion in France and Spain in 1941. Barclay was later killed over El Alamein in 1942, shot down by German fighter ace Lt Werner Schröer. This diary is a rare, descriptive and articulate chronicle of the life of an RAF front-line fighter pilot in 1940–1.

Squadron Leader Richard George Arthur Barclay DFC was an RAF fighter pilot who fought throughout the Battle of Britain and was killed in action on 17 July 1942 over El Alamein, aged 22
