For King and Country by Nicolas Trudgian
In morning light, Hurricanes of No. 56 Squadron, with ‘US-X’ flown by Pilot Officer Geoffrey Page, scramble from North Weald to intercept a large formation of bombers heading for London. Below them, the airfield recovers from the damage of successive Luftwaffe attacks and the Hurricanes of No.151 Squadron which are receiving essential maintenance are, for safety, dispersed around the perimeter. Ground crews live under canvas to be close to their charges, while, just beyond the boundary hedge, life goes on as well as it can. On the 12th August 1940, Geoffrey Page would be shot down, bailing out, badly burned. It would be two years before he returned to flying.
