I must admit I had never heard of this pilot [the most successful BOB ace], who sadly disappeared over the skies of France in 1941.
They've been working together for so long that each seems to know by a sort of telepathy when another is in trouble. One never seems to get them together. Get one & the others come after him. To give the devil his due they make a formidable team.
