Hurricane fighter plane dives through clouds towards the ground,

he goes down through the thick grey murk, no one can see him or knows

where he is going.

His wingmen landed some time ago and still there is no trace of him.

Is he gone, his plane so many smashed pieces of metal or burnt ash?

The dogfight was fast and swift with many planes turning and rolling

for ascendancy over the other, six Germans and two Hurricanes are missing.

Yes we beat them this time, but for what? If only this was a game and

everyone survived.

There will be empty beds tonight and a grieving girlfriend and family,

hoping against hope that their boy will return.
