Privacy Statement The Airmen’s Stories – F/O P J C King

 

Peter James Christopher King of Farnborough, Warwickshire, joined the RAF on a short service commission in September 1938. He was serving with 66 Squadron at Coltishall in early July 1940.

He claimed a Me109 destroyed on 4th September and although his aircraft was badly damaged in a combat over Dover, he returned safely to Kenley.

King was shot down the next day, 5th September, by Me109’s over the Medway. He baled out but was killed when his parachute failed to open. His Spitfire, N3060, crashed into the sea off Hoo Marina.

King was 19. He is buried in St Botolph’s churchyard, Farnborough.
