WELCOME TO THE

JOHN SAMPLE

HOME PAGE. 


THIS SITE IS DEDICATED TO THE MEMORY OF SQUADRON LEADER JOHN SAMPLE DFC. IT CAME INTO BEING FOR NO OTHER REASON THAN a) HE WAS BORN ONLY A MILE FROM MY HOME. b) I HAVE CARRIED OUT MUCH RESEARCH INTO HIS LIFE.

JOHN SAMPLE IS ONE OF THE FORGOTTEN MEN OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN, NOT ONLY NATIONALLY BUT LOCALLY AS WELL. THAT IS WHY HE'S REMEMBERED HERE.

THIS SITE IS NOT CONNECTED TO NEAM.

JOHN SAMPLE'S FLYING CAREER BEGAN BEFORE THE OUTBREAK OF WORLD WAR TWO. AS A FLIGHT COMMANDER ON 607 SQUADRON, HE WAS IN PART, RESPONSIBLE FOR THE SHOOTING DOWN OF IT"S FIRST 'KILL'. HE ALSO FLEW IN THE BATTLE OF FRANCE AND LATER IN THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN. YOU MAY SEARCH THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN LITERATURE FOR EVIDENCE OF JOHN SAMPLE BUT YOU WILL SEARCH IN VAIN. HE IS OF COURSE MENTIONED IN THE VARIOUS LISTS. HOWEVER, AS A VETERAN OF THE BATTLE OF FRANCE AS WELL AS AN EXPERIENCED PILOT AND SQUADRON LEADER OF THE BATTLE OF BRITAIN, JOHN SAMPLE DESERVES MUCH MORE THAN THIS. HE WAS ONE OF THE FIGHTER LEADERS DURING THAT EPIC BATTLE, HE WAS ALSO ONE OF CHURCHILL'S FEW.
