More than 50 years ago, Clive Ellis first viewed the 1969 epic film Battle of Britain on the big screen. Initially awestruck, inspired, then subsequently fascinated by those intense aerial battle scenes, he has been consumed by reaesrch into the Battle of Britain ever since. Along the way, a chance meeting with Eddie Creek of Chevron/Classic Publications during 1999 culminated in assisting with the Jagdwaffe (Luftwaffe Colours) series on the subject in 2000. From then on, he has contributed material in support of various book projects and magazine articles. Outside his research at the National Archives at Kew, he is particularly interested in finding the actual crash sites where aircraft from both sides came down and also in establishing exactly what happened to the various pilots and aircrew involved, finding out their names and details of where they came from.
