This photograph is actually pre war dating from when he was flying with treble-one Squadron at Northolt, the white flying suits being a tell-tale sign. He joined No 615 Squadron in October 1939 as a Flight Commander and flew with the Squadron throughout the Battle of France and the Battle of Britain earning himself a DFC. In October 1940 he was picked to form 422 Flight FIU and went on to claim a number of night victories. His eventual tally was around 16 victories, but could have been higher.
