    I think it was not the pilot I am looking for.
    Based on "Men of the Battle of Britain" ROBERT HUGH BARBER 42385 was born on December 19 1915 at Hatfield, Hertfordshire. He posted to 7 OTU Hawarden on July 29 1940 and later was posted to 46 Squadron. On 4.09.1940 he forced-landed at Chig- borough Farm, Goldhanger Road, Heybridge and was admitted to St Margaretís Hospital, Epping, with three fractured vertebrae in his neck and his jaw broken in three places. He was in hospital for six months.

    thanks
