Our research into the history of Percival Q6 was just one of the reasons for a visit to East Kent last July. G-AFFD was based at Lympne by Sir Philip Sassoon; we believe that it was flown by RAF fighter pilots stationed at nearby RAF Hawkinge with II(AC) and 25(F) Squadrons. East Kent is perilously close to what was Nazi-occupied Northern France during the Battle of Britain and retains much of interest to those wishing to learn about the Battle.
