    S/L Gnys was the C.O. of No. 317 Squadron. His Spitfire IX NH365 was hit by Flak in the Seine area on 27th August 1944 (not 7th as written in the battle of Britain website. He crashlanded and was captured, but rescued by French Maquis a few days later. He was back in U.K. around the 6 or 7 September, wounded but alive.

    He wrote his memoirs, named "First Kill", published by William in Kimber 1981. No détails about this event in the book, this chapter is written as if it was by his wife.
