View the poetry of this Poartry composition by clicking on the small tab. The work is dedicated to the genius who designed the de Havilland Spitfire. The plane that, in no small part, was intrumental in winning the Battle of Britain.

Unfortunately he died before the great air battle in 1940 that saw off any chance of invasion by the German forces.
