On the afternoon of 28 July 1940, acting F/L Adolph G "Sailor" Malan of No 74 Squadron RAF found himself in combat with Maj Werner Mölders of JG51 over Dover. Noticing the German ace about to move up to the tail of Spitfire Mk I ZP-A, the 30-year-old South African CO pulled around to line up a shot at his adversary, damaging the radiator and fuel tank of his adversary's Me 109E-3.
