Barney Barnfather (Life on a Spitfire Squadron) by Angus Mansfield
RAF fighter pilot, Riversdale Robert ‘Barney’ Barnfather, flew Spitfires in action almost continuously from November 1941 until the end of the war in Europe. Barney was in the thick of the fighting taking part in the offensive sweeps over France, in the desperate air battle for Malta, the fighting in North Africa, the invasions of Sicily and Italy, and finally on the fringes of the Third Reich over Austria in 1945. This type of experienced and brave pilot formed the backbone of Fighter Command and after many operational flying hours, clashes with enemy aircraft and even a mid-air collision, he survived it all relatively unscathed.
