Like many young boys educated in the lead up to the Second World War, ANGUS FINDON was set on joining the RAF and becoming a fighter pilot. However, plagued by ill health he was initially forced to settle for helping the war effort by joining the ARP. Subsequently employed as a ploughman working the fields of the South Downs, he also served in the Home Guard. Not one to give up, he persisted in his desire to fly and eventually, after training in Canada, found himself in the cockpit of a Republic P-47 Thunderbolt II in Burma.
