First Flap of the Day by Nicolas Trudgian features a Spitfire and Me109s in combat over Dover.
‘HM’ Stephen - one of the Battle of Britain's top scoring fighter pilots, brings down two Me109s in quick succession over the white cliffs of Dover, early on August 11, 1940. Flying a Spitfire with 74 Squadron, 'HM' shot down five German aircraft on this day, and damaged a further three. The note in his log book starts "First flap of the day at 0600 hrs ..."
First Flap of the Day - Artist Proof by Nicolas Trudgian is signed by Wing Commander ‘H.M.’ Stephen, plus Wing Commander JOHN FREEBORN who flew more operational hours during the Battle of Britain than any other RAF pilot.
