Author Biography - Johnny A. Kent

Johnny Kent grew up in Winnipeg and was bitten by the flying bug at an early age. He grabbed experience and flying hours wherever and whenever he could and was constantly on the lookout for a career in flying. His chance came when he was offered a short service commission with the RAF in the 1930s. He went on to become a Group Captain and the leader of one of the most successful fighter squadrons of the Battle of Britain - the famous Polish 303 Squadron. It is a story of triumphant achievement in combat and of a man whose air force career certainly picked him out as 'One of the Few'. He received a string of awards, the DFC, AFC and the highest Polish military award, the Virtuti Militari. He died in 1985 at the age of 71.
