Remembering the Few with Wing Commander Tom Neil

Last summer, we were lucky enough to interview Wing Commander Tom Neil, one of the last of 'the Few' who fought in the Battle of Britain. During the Battle he shot down at least 13 enemy aircraft; he saw over half his squadron shot down within 5 minutes; he is also credited with the longest flight ever recorded in a Hurricane (5 hours and 45 minutes). Tom continued to serve in the RAF throughout the rest of the war. In this interview, the Wing Commander talks through his remarkable experience of the Second World War and what it was like to battle in the skies. Tom passed away on 11 July 2018.
