“During this time I led 92 on sixty-odd operations and the squadron achieved the highest success rate of any Squadron in the Battle of Britain. After Dunkirk we’d moved to South Wales, partly for a rest and partly to look after the West Country ports and installations.
We moved back to Biggin Hill at the end of August when I became 92’s acting Commanding Officer, a position I held for the next six weeks until a bullet in the leg put me in hospital.”
Group Captain Brian Kingcome DSO DFC*
