Peter has always described his involvement in the Battle of Britain as `one of the also rans` but I am sure that is a very modest view. He joined the RAFVR in June 1939 and after converting to Hurricanes, he joined No 56 Squadron at Boscombe Down on 17 September 1940. On the 30 September he was shot down in combat and was forced to bale out over the Portland area. On the 16 November he and PO Ingle-Finch were flying a Miles Magister when it crashed at Okeford and both were admitted to hospital. In June 1941 Peter joined 234 Squadron at Warmwell. Unfortunately on 21 October 1941 his luck ran out when he was shot down over France and taken POW. After being freed on 16 April 1945, he rejoined the RAF until 1946.

The late Peter Fox was a lovely character and had some great stories about being shot down, parachuting and a monkey (squadron mascot).
