Fascinated by the Battle of Britain from an early age, as a young man Dilip Sarkar real-ised that recording and sharing the Few’s memories was of paramount importance. Back in the mid-1980s, membership of the Battle of Britain Fighter Association was well populated and the then Honorary Secretary, the now late Wing Commander Pat Hancock DFC, OBE, sup-ported Dilip’s research by forwarding letters to individual pilots of interest.
Those members of the Few included a wide-range of personalities, from famous airmen like Group Captain Peter Townsend and Air Marshal Sir Denis Crowley-Milling, to the ‘also rans’, as Unique memories from the Battle of Britain Hurricane pilot Peter Fox famously described himself and peers.
One of The Few that features in the book is Air Vice-Marshal David Scott-Malden CB DSO DFC. Francis David Stephen Scott-Malden was an im-pressive individual by any standards. Born on Boxing Day 1919, at Portslade, Sussex.
