The Battle of Britain was the first major campaign to be fought entirely by air forces. Day after day the RAF scrambled young pilots in to the sky to do battle.
In this sculpture Peter Close has sought to personify one of Dowding's young RAF fighter pilots of The Battle of Britain. In a crumpled uniform he stands looking to the sky with the air of youthful defiance that earned these young men Churchill’s accolade of ‘The Few’. The pilot is depicted wearing a service dress uniform with shirt and tie, 1936 pattern boots, 1932 pattern ‘Mae west’, ‘B’ type flying helmet with ‘D’ oxygen mask and Mk III goggles.
