    Default Wc hugh william eliot, dso, dfc, battle of britain veteran, picture?

    I am looking for a picture of raf wing commander hugh william eliot, dso, dfc of 255 & 73 squadron. Veteran of battle of britain, later killed in italy march 45. Any other information would be appreciated. I found london gazette postings & awards, photo of his grave, but no obituary. Thank you very much!

    Thank you so much, gerry for your help! I found him in the list liked you said & was able to print out his story. I noticed that eliot was killed along with his copilot flying a mosquito. Is there a way to find out that he flew a hurricane or spitfire or both in the baiile of britain? Thank you so much for your help, god bless. Sincerely yours, paul kraus

    Hi Paul,

    73 flew Hurricanes in France and the Battle of Britain. So did 261 Sqn on Malta.
