“I’ve got no particular feelings about it, I quite enjoyed it really.”

“It was just part of my life,” Mr. Farnes said of his time in a battle that is widely regarded as saving Britain from German occupation,

Mr. Farnes joined 501 Squadron in September 1939 and during his time with Royal Air Force he shot down eight enemy planes. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Medal on 22nd of October 1940.

It's amazing that a man took part in one of the most important battles of the twentieth century, and he's so nonchalant about it, but I think he's being completely honest.
