    I just watched "the Battle of Britain" again; and at the end there's an honour role of alle the pilots that flew (and those that died) for the RAF in the battle.

    The last entry is as the title says; one Isreali flew; and survived.

    But hold on a minute!

    Isreal didn't exist in 1940! So how could an Isreali be flying for the RAF in 1940?

    So any one know the story there?

    The list aint 100% complete since there also has been @ least 1 dutch person who flew in the BoB(searching for the documentation now).

    i know that the person in question flew with a English squadron and not 1 of the foreign ones.

    the interesting statistic for Australians is that a much higher percentage of Australian pilots were killed then any other country
