Sample text

This in itself caused some complaint on the grounds that the rules for ‘unconfirmed destroyed’ had been rather more stringent than those for the ‘probable’ classification, and that the reclassification was not therefore a fair one. Now the fun really starts! It becomes clear that totals recorded in decoration citations relating to the fighting over France and Dunkirk in May and June 1940 almost certainly include an amalgam of confirmed and unconfirmed destroyed, and shares. Thus for instance a recorded six victories may relate to one and one shared confirmed, two and two shared unconfirmed.

Each pilot’s biography has been made as complete and concise as possible within the constraints of space, while those claims we have been able to find (which we believe to be the vast majority) are listed in order that readers may assess for themselves, together with the relevant squadron summaries, the conditions under which each pilot operated, and the level of achievement thereby indicated. Are they all ‘aces’? No, not in the strict sense of the word. We have had to set ourselves a number of criteria, and seek to adhere to these.

Now the fun really starts! It becomes clear that totals recorded in decoration citations relating to the fighting over France and Dunkirk in May and June 1940 almost certainly include an amalgam of confirmed and unconfirmed destroyed, and shares. Thus for instance a recorded six victories may relate to one and one shared confirmed, two and two shared unconfirmed. The only way of checking is via squadron record books, combat reports or individual pilots’ logbooks. However, this period is the most difficult of all to obtain such information for.
