When acting F/L Adolph G "Sailor" Malan returned to RAF Hornchurch after his last sortie on 27 May 1940, his eyes were so tired that the airfield was in a sort of haze, and he just threw Spitfire Mk I ZP-A on to the ground. He had claimed 1 an 1 shared destroyed and 2 damaged over Dunkirk, before beginning a long, steep climb during which he quickly installed a spare ring and bead sight that he kept in the cockpit for the damaged Reflector Sight Mk II.

The unique skills and command of Adolph ‘Sailor’ Malan resulted in Squadron’s numerous victories during the Battle of Britain.
