An adventurous boy, Norman Samuels always wanted to fly, and his chance came with the outbreak of the 2nd World War. He couldn't wait to join up and realise his dream to become a pilot. Dubbed 'Ace' by his instructor, Norman was a natural. He flew continuously until 1940 when he was shot down by the Germans. 70 years later, Norman remembers his time as though it were yesterday, reflects on the privilege of flying such wonderful aircraft in the service of his country, and what it means to finally have recognition.
