HEAD ON ATTACK
On 12 October 1940, No. 603 Squadron based at RAF Hornchurch, reduced to only eight aircraft, took on a large formation of Me109s attacking head on.
Robert Taylor's vivid portrayal shows David Scott-Malden's Spitfire moments after knocking down an Me109 in the encounter, both he and his wingman coming through unscathed.
"I can't believe I was stupid enough to actually do that. But I did! Youthful exuberance I suppose, and the belief it will never happen to me. Congratulations, Robert; you got it in one!" Air Vice Marshal DAVID SCOTT-MALDEN
