I found this copy of Fighter Pilot – A Personal Record of the Battle of France in a local used book store about ten years ago. It was intriguing in that there was no author indicated on the cover or title page. It turns out Flight Lieutenant and ultimately Wing Commander Paul Richey wrote it and it was first published in 1941, when the government of Great Britain found it imprudent to reveal the names of their pilots. I have seen other copies, also from 1941, that credit him as author with a photo of him in dress uniform.
The story of No. 1 Squadron takes you through the transition from the “phoney war” to Great Britain’s retreat from France. The air battles, unit moves to various airfields and description of general conditions make for a compelling read. A number of photos are included though not the second image I have included here. I found that one on the web searching Richey’s name.
