Description: This repaint represents Spitfire Mk. I X4107 "PR-F" of 609 (West Riding) Squadron during August & September of 1940. In particular, two pilot's who flew X4107 are remembered although other men flew X4107 as well during its brief career; they are Pilot Officer (later F/L) Alfred Keith Ogilvie and Pilot Officer Rogers Freeman Garland Miller.
42419 P/O Rogers Freeman Garland Miller joined the Royal Air Force on a Short Service COmmission in June 1939 and was posted to 609 Squadron at Northolt on June 11, 1940. He damaged a Do17 in July and destroyed a Ju87 in August before being killed when his Spitfire (X4107) collided with a Bf110. P/O Miller was just 20 years old; he is buried in St. Nicholas' churchyard, Radford Semele, Warwickshire.
42872 P/O Alfred Keith "Skeets" Ogilvie, D.F.C. was born in Ottawa in 1915 and joined the Royal Air Force on a Short Service Commission in 1939. He joined 609 Squadron on August 20, 1940, flew with them during the Battle of Britain and went on to become an Ace before being shot down by a Bf109 on July 4, 1941. During his final engagement he was wounded and subsequently baled out of his damaged aircraft. After being captured, he spent 9 months in the hospital before being sent to Stalag Luft III. He got out during the "Great Escape" but was recaptured and interrogated by the Gestapo. He was one of the lucky ones in the sense that he was not shot after the escape like many of his friends. After his release in May 1945, F/L Ogilvie transferred to the RCAF.
This repaint is in honour of both these brave men and the heroic struggle of "The Few".
