A very happy 101st birthday today (16th July, 2019) to Paul Caswell Powe Farnes, DFM, AE, the last of “The Few” who flew from RAF Kenley during the Battle of Britain. Paul arrived with 501 Squadron and their Hurricanes on 10th September, 1940 and remained in the thick of the action at Kenley, until 17 December, 1940.
