Johnny Kent became the youngest licensed pilot in Canada at the age of 17. 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 the leader of one of the most successful fighter squadrons in the Second World War. Group Captain Johnny Kent's skilful leadership helped the famous 303 Squadron to play a decisive part in the Battle of Britain, and won him the highest Polish military award, the Virtuti Militari. This is Captain Kent's own story of his life in the RAF, from his struggles as a boy in the wilds of Canada to get into the air through his experiences as a test pilot at Farnborough and his constant efforts to fly wherever the action was.
