He joined the Royal Air Force in 1933, and trained at Cranwell. He served in Training Command, and as a flying instructor at RAF Montrose. He was stationed at RAF Tangmere in 1937 and was a member of No. The first enemy aircraft to crash on English soil during World War II fell victim to fighters from Acklington on 3 February 1940 when three Hurricanes of B flight, 43 Squadron, shot down a Heinkel 111 of 4. The pilots were F/L Townsend, F/O Tiger Folkes and Sgt. He was awarded the DFC in April 1940. Two more He 111s were claimed by Townsend, on 22 February and 8 April, and a sixth share on 22 April.

Return fire from the Dornier hit the Hurricane coolant system and Townsend was forced to ditch 20 miles from the English coast, being rescued by HM Trawler Cape Finisterre. On 31 August, during combat with Bf 110s over Tunbridge, Townsend was shot down and wounded in the left foot by a cannon shell which went through the glycol tank and exploded in the cockpit. A bar to his DFC was awarded in early September 1940. He oversaw the conversion of 85 Squadron to night operations at RAF Hunsdon during early 1941. Awarded a DSO in April 1941, he later became Commanding Officer RAF Drew in April 1942 and commanded No. 611 Squadron RAF, a Spitfire unit. Townsend was later leader of No. 605 Squadron RAF, a night fighter unit, and attended the staff college from October 1942. In January 1943, he was appointed Commanding Officer of RAF West Malling. His wartime record was 9 aircraft claimed destroyed (and 2 shared), 2’probables’ and 4 damaged. In 1944, he was appointed temporary equerry to King George VI. In the same year the appointment was made permanent, and he served until 1953, when he became Extra Equerry, an honorary office he held until his death. He was promoted Group Captain in 1948. In August 1950, he was made deputy Master of the Household and was moved to comptroller to the Queen Mother in 1952. He retired from the Royal Household in the next year, and was air attach√© in Brussels 1953 to 1956. WE ARE UACC REGISTERED DEALERS NUMBER RD209. We are UACC Registered Dealers RD209.

W Dalton DFM who has also written a summary of his career! There are two sheets of paper, both double sided, this is VERY unusual! Ronald William Dalton was born on 24th August 1918. He joined the RAFVR about July 1939 as an Airman u/t Aircrew. Called up on 1st September 1939, he was training at No. 1 Air Observers Navigation School at Prestwick in January 1940. However by July 1940 Dalton had moved to No. 1 AAS Manby on a gunnery course, on completion of which he was posted to 5 OTU Aston Down. He joined 604 Squadron at Middle Wallop in late August but his first two operational patrols were not made until 26th October, the first with Sgt. Brown and the second with F/Lt. When the squadron converted completely from Blenheims to Beaufighters after the Battle of Britain, Dalton was one of the air gunners who were retrained as radar operators on the squadron. During the night of 5th May 1941 Dalton was flying with F/Lt. IKS Joll when they destroyed a Ju88 near Chawleigh, Devon, on 6th June they destroyed a Ju88, which crashed into the sea off Poole, on 8th June they damaged a He111 near Botley, Hampshire and in the early hours of 5th July they shot down a He111 near Oakford, Devon. On 28th October 1941 Dalton was involved in the destruction of a Ju88, possibly flying with a F/Lt. Dalton was awarded the DFM (gazetted 2nd December 1941) for displaying great skill in night operations. Commissioned in January 1942, Dalton was still serving with 604 when he and F/Lt. W Hoy shot down a He111 west of Lands End just after midnight on 29th July 1942. They destroyed a He177 south of Beachy Head during the night of 7th March 1943. In July 1943, with his tour completed, Dalton was posted away to 62 OTU as an instructor, later moving to 51 OTU. They flew anti-V1 patrols and shot one down on 9th July. They also flew night patrols, high-level bomber-support and low-level intruder patrols but had no further success. Dalton stayed on in the RAF after the war. He received a Mention in Despatches (gazetted 1st January 1946). He was later with 29 Squadron at Tangmere and made his last flight in December 1956. Dalton retired from the RAF on 31st March 1958 as a Squadron Leader. He died on 29th June 2004. WE ARE UACC REGISTERED DEALERS NUMBER RD209. We are UACC Registered Dealers RD209.

WW2 RAF Battle of Britain ace BOBBY OXSPRING signed handwritten letter on card. 5×8 inch Handwritten letter on index type card which is creased or folded across the centre (see scan) signed by Battle of Britain ace Bobby Oxspring DFC in which he answers a few aviation related questions. Group Captain Robert Wardlow “Bobby” Oxspring, DFC & Two Bars, AFC (22 May 1919 8 August 1989) was a Royal Air Force officer and flying ace of the Second World War. Oxspring was granted a short service commission as an acting pilot officer on 7 May 1938, being described at the time as “a tallish, good-looking, fair-headed bloke” and served in No. He was regraded to pilot officer on 7 March 1939. Flying throughout the Battle of Britain, Oxspring was promoted to flying officer on 3 September 1940 and on 25 October was shot down in Spitfire X4170 near Capel, Kent. Known as one of the battle’s great aces, he was one of the fraction of The Few selected by Fighter Command to have a portrait drawn by Cuthbert Orde, sitting for it on 9 December 1940. On 8 November 1940 he was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross (DFC). One day in September, 1940, Flight Lieutenant Oxspring was engaged on an offensive patrol with his squadron. Whilst acting as rear guard, he sighted and engaged several Messerschmitt 109’s 3,000 feet above. After driving them off, he led his section in an attack against a large formation of enemy bombers and succeeded in destroying a Dornier 17 at short range and also in damaging two Heinkel III’s. He has at all times led his section with skill and determination, and has destroyed six enemy aircraft. Promoted to flight lieutenant (war substantive) on 3 September 1941, he became flight commander in No. 41 Squadron RAF and went on to command No. 91 Squadron RAF at RAF Hawkinge, No. 222 Squadron RAF and No. He was awarded a Bar to his DFC on 18 September 1942, with the citation. This squadron commander has rendered much valuable service. He has destroyed at least 7 enemy aircraft. Moving to Mediterranean combat, it is thought probable that Oxspring was the pilot who shot down renowned German ace Anton Hafner of JG 51 on 2 January 1943. Having led his squadron to be the highest scoring in the North African theatre, and survived his second shooting down of the war, Oxspring was awarded a second Bar to his DFC in February 1943, with the citation reading. During initial operations from forward airfields in North Africa Squadron Leader Oxspring led his formation on many sorties. He destroyed one enemy aircraft, bringing his total victories to 8. His outstanding devotion to duty and fine fighting qualities have been worthy of high praise. On 1 January 1944 he was promoted to temporary squadron leader and was promoted to squadron leader (war substantive) on 15 June 1944, the rank he held when the conflict ceased in 1945. During the war he had registered 13 solo kills with 2 shared, 2 probable kills and 4 solo V-1 flying bombs destroyed and 1 shared. WE ARE UACC REGISTERED DEALERS NUMBER RD209.

Ronald Leslie Stillwell was born in Holborn, London on 31st January 1920 and joined the RAFVR on 8th February 1939 as an Airman u/t Pilot. He carried out his weekend flying at 13 E&RFTS White Waltham.

He moved to 10 FTS Tern Hill and finished the course there on 23rd July when he was posted to 5 OTU Aston Down, on 5th August, to convert to Spitfires. He joined 65 Squadron at Hornchurch on 19th August 1940. Stillwell was promoted to Warrant Officer on 1st May 1942, commissioned in June and awarded the DFM (gazetted 16th June 1942). The citation stated that in August 1941 he sighted a bomber crew in the sea fifteen miles off the Dutch coast and his information enabled them to be rescued. In April 1942, returning from a sweep, he sighted a pilot in the sea without a dinghy and although short of fuel, he managed to drop his own dinghy 25 yards from the spot.
