More Description


On 12 August 1940, during the Battle of Britain, in an engagement with Dornier Do 17s, Geoffrey Page was shot down into the English Channel, suffering severe burns. He spent much of the next two years in hospitals, undergoing plastic surgery, but recovered sufficiently to pursue an extremely distinguished war and postwar career.

This eloquently written and critically acclaimed autobiography tells of his wartime exploits in the air and on the ground. He was a founding member of The Guinea Pig Club - formed by badly burnt aircrew - and this is a fascinating account of the Club, of the courage and bravery of 'The Few', and of Geoffrey's later life and achievements, most particularly in the creation of The Battle of Britain memorial.
