About Bob Stanford-Tuck

Things you may like to know.

Flying a Spitfire with 92 Sqn, Bob Stanford-Tuck destroyed a Me109 and two Me110 enemy fighters over Dunkirk on his first day in combat. It was a portent of what was to come: The swashbuckling, debonair Stanford-Tuck became one of the top-scoring Aces in the Battle of Britain, a darling of the Press, and a household name right across Britain. At the height of the Battle, in mid-summer 1940, Stanford-Tuck was given command of 257 Hurricane Squadron, which he led with great panache until mid-1941. Returning to fly his beloved Spitfire, he took command of the Wing at Duxford, later leading Biggin Hill’s famous Spitfire Wing. With a tally of 29 victories, in January 1942 Bob Stanford-Tuck’s luck ran out when he was shot down by ground fire at low-level over Northern France. He survived, was taken prisoner and spent the rest of the war as a POW.
