Pat Hughes Fighter Ace
Fri Feb 25, 2011 8:57am

Pat Hughes, or C.P.Hughes was one of the finest fighter aces of the Battle of Britain.

I loved hearing first hand accounts of him by Keith Lawrence, who flew with him and said he was a great leader.

Sad to say that not long his marriage to Kay, he was Killed in Action in the Battle of Britain.

Greater love has no man but that he lay his life down for his fellow man.

500 plus did the same thing in 1940.

We will remember them all in our various ways.

            Superb! "Send reinforcements we are going to advance". Message as taken by soldier: "Send three and fourpence we are going to a dance". Love Doug

              Punctuation can make a difference too. "Not getting any better. Come home" wife sent telegram Soldier received it as "Not getting any. Better come home". Love Doug
