Peter Townsend

Group captain Peter Townsend, author and pilot originally flew Hurricanes during the Battle of Britain where he was commanding 85 Squadron. However during the making of the film ‘The Battle of Britain’ in 1969, where he was one of the advisors, he took to the air again – this time in Spitfires.

As he said in thanking the production company in the notes to his book ‘Duel of Eagles’ ‘…and for letting me play with their Spitfires.’
