Beautiful airplane, no wonder they won the Battle of Britain. I went to school in Aspull and had a school mate named Ronald Sutch, any relation of yours?

Love the photo..The people of Britain owe a heck of a lot to those planes and the people that flew in them..people who risked their lives and those who lost their lives in that battle.. God Bless them all !!
