I realize how lucky I am to work on a Spitfire restoration project and meet many Spitfire veteran pilots. Here is a little post-script to the story of the Warren twins (for full story, see The incredible Spitfire twins – Ed.).
Doug “Duke” Warren and I have become good friends the past few years and I have built a set of 1/48th scale models for the Comox Air Force Museum of both Warren twins Spitfires Mk V. As mentioned previously, the brothers served with No. 165 Squadron RAF, which at the time of Operation Dynamo (landing at Dieppe) was based in Eastchurch.
The models are built from Tamiya kits.
