Squadron Leader Mahinder S Pujji, DFC, is one of the most experienced Second World War veteran fighter pilots.

As a young man in India he answered the call to arms, and he was among the first twenty-four Indian pilots to arrive in England to join the RAF.

Before long he was in the front line, fighting in the battle for Britain's survival, voluntarily risking his life for a country not his own.

Whether on the home front, in the Western Desert, on the Indian Frontier or in Burma, Pujji gained a reputation as much for his qualities of determination and modesty as for his consummate flying skills.
