Is there any use introducing Sq. Leader Mouchotte?

"If my destiny is just to have a short fighter career, I would thank heaven for having been able to give my life for the liberation of France."
Sq. Leader René Mouchotte.

On June 17th 1940, Sergeant René Mouchotte is in the French base of Oran. He is informed there of the "incredible news", the capitulation of France. He never really fought; up to that moment, he was pilot instructor in a training unit, in spite of three demands he made before, for being transferred to a fighting unit.

Three days later, the French forces in North Africa received the order to stop the fight. This was too much for him: "I do want to go to England. As my country rejected me as a fighter, I will fight for it, in spite of it, without it".

To avoid escapes, the base engineers broke down the aircrafts. In the evening of June 29th, he hided, with five friends, a twin motor Goeland, apparently available. Apparently only! The propeller pitch was set to a position close to "feathered propeller". In spite of it, he took off at dawn, with just enough speed to avoid crashing, and flew to Gibraltar. From there, he reached London and enlisted in the F.A.F.L (Free French Air Force).

We join him at Old Sarum, at three miles from Salisbury, for the first training flights.


This historical campaign follows the book.
Especially enjoy the London city view, prepared by Tchaïka (among others).
