We have just been informed of the sad loss of Wing Commander Bob Foster, Chairman of the Battle of Britain Fighter Association he was aged 94.
As well as being one of our Battle of Britain pilots, “One of the Few”, he had an Australian connection as Flight Lieutenant with 54 Squadron, which came to Australia as part of No 1 Fighter Wing. He scored the squadron’s first Australian victory on 6 February 1943.
We attach a Mini Biography on Bob and you may care to print it off and read about a man who contributed a lot throughout his life time. After all that is what we are here for!
Our sympathies are extended to his family, friends and colleagues.
