The winter of ’41 is remembered well by Geoffrey Wellum, pilot of Spitfire ‘G’ for George. Bitter cold and heavy snow during this Battle of Britain period made flying conditions almost unbearable. The ground-crew’s job at RAF Manston, never easy at the best of times, involved working in all weathers to keep the aircraft in a state of readiness for the pilots to return to the battle at the earliest opportunity.
