Remembered by: The Online Book Company

Date added: 26 Jul 2018

We were sad to learn that Geoffrey Wellum, one of The Few, died at his home in Cornwall on Wednesday evening.

Mr Wellum was one of the youngest Spitfire pilots to fly in the Battle of Britain.

The former Squadron Leader served on the front line with 92 Squadron and some of his first combat missions included the dogfights above London and the Home Counties for which the Battle of Britain became known.

 He went on to be awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross and was promoted to Flight Commander with 65 Squadron and later led eight Spitfires from HMS Furious to relieve Malta.
