    Default Roderick Mann-Spitfire pilot?

    In the Los Angeles Times, there was today an obituary for Roderick Mann, a British businessman who lived in LA, who just died at 87 year old. In the obituary, it as mentioned that he flew as a fighter pilot in WWII on Spitfires and Hurricanes.

    Does anyone know what unit he flew with?
