Happy Birthday Wing Commander

Wing Commander Paul Farnes DFM, fighter pilot, Battle of Britain Ace and a great supporter of the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust, is 101 today.

The Trust was delighted to welcome Wing Cdr Farnes to the Battle of Britain Memorial at Capel-le-Ferne just over a week ago when he joined us for Memorial Day.

A unique video in which he looked back on his time in the RAF and his experiences during the Battle of Britain – and revealed his great sense of humour – was enjoyed by visitors to the event.

We are sure you will want to join us in wishing Wing Cdr Farnes a very happy, peaceful and relaxing birthday – 101 not out!
