On 12 August 1940, during the Battle of Britain in an engagement with Dornier Do17s Geoffrey Page was show down into the English Channel suffering severe burns.  He spent much of the next two years in hospitals undergoing plastic surgery but recovered sufficiently to pursue an extremely distinguished war and post war career.

Geoffrey Page was a founder member of The Guinea Pig Club - formed by badly burnt aircrew - and this is a fascinating account of the club of the courage and bravery of The Few and Geoffrey's later achievements most particularly in the creation of The Battle of Britain Memorial.
