So Few

The book ‘So Few’ is a folio dedicated to all who fought and won in the Battle of Britain. It was written by John Golley, a Hurricane pilot and Typhoon pilot who served with No 245 Squadron at Tangmere’s satellite, Westhampnett (now Goodwood airfield) in the early part of 1944. After the war he took up a career as a feature writer specialising in aviation and industry and subsequently moved to advertising and sales. After retirement he wrote a number of best selling military books including the official biography of Sir Frank Whittle. He died in 2000. His family has decided to donate to the Museum a number of his personal possessions including a copy of ‘So Few’ and its companion ‘So Many’, dedicated to all who served in Bomber Command 1939-1945. The photograph shows John’s daughter, Mrs Cartwright, presenting a copy of ‘So Few’ to David Coxon, Curator of the Museum, on 27 September.
