About Paddy Barthropp

Things you may like to know.

One of the RAF’s most flamboyant fighter pilots, Paddy Barthropp joined 601 Sqn in August 1940 and flew Spitfires for the remainder of the Battle of Britain. By the beginning of 1941 he had shot down nine enemy aircraft.

In 1941 Barthropp was posted to 91 Sqn as a flight commander, at Hornchurch. On May 17 he shot down an Fw190 but was immediately shot down himself by another Fw190 over St. Omer in Northern France, baled out and was taken prisoner. He escaped twice before being sent to the ‘persistent escapee’s’ prison Oglag XXIB in Poland. Within days he instigated a tunnel breakout.
