Douglas Bader

Group Captain Sir Douglas Robert Steuart Bader

Bader joined the Royal Air Force in 1928 and was commissioned in 1930. In 1931 he lost both legs after crashing during aerobatics which resulted in his retirement. However, at the outbreak of war Bader was accepted as a pilot and fought over Dunkirk and throughout the Battle of Britain. This design celebrates Bader as a Fighter Ace with 22 destroyed to his name, but he was part of the RAF that was served by many men and women who were all heroes. Thanks to Andy Perkins of the 'Spitnuts' Facebook Group who provided the research for these designs.
