Product description

When the Germans invaded the Netherlands in 1940, a fundraising campaign started in the Netherlands Indies to defend the homeland. Money was raised through the 'Spitfire Fund' to finance Spitfires. These Spitfires were almost all given East Indian names. These are applied to the airceaft, such as 'Sumatra' for example. It was the intention that a Squadron (the Gen. Winkelman Sqn!) would be established in England where ML-KNIL would be stationed. KNIL pilots were already sent to England in 1941 to gain experience, including at No.611 Sqn, where the pilots received their war experience. One of the pilots was Theo Buijs, he achieved three victories, but was killed on June 24, 1941...Due to the invasion of Japan in Ned. Indie, the whole plan fell through and the more than 100 Dutch Eeast Indies funded Spitfires were divided over various squadrons (not at 167/322 Sqn). Read the complete story about 'our' Spitfires...

Revised second edition with new pictures, a new chapter by Max Schep, new profiles and more pages

 
Toen in 1940 de Duitsers Nederland binnen vielen, begon in Nederlands Indie een inzamelingsactie om het vaderland te verdedigen. Er werden door middel van het 'Spitfire Fonds' geld in gezameld om Spitfires te financieren, deze Spitfires kregen vrijwel allemaal Indische namen. Deze worden aangebracht op het toestel, zoals bijv. 'Sumatra'. Het was de bedoeling dat er in Engeland een Squadron (het Gen. Winkelman Sqn!) zou opgericht worden waar ML-KNIL zouden worden gestationeerd. Er werden al in 1941 KNIL vliegers naar Engeland gestuurd om ervaring op te doen, o.a. bij No.611 Sqn, de vliegers kregen daar hun oorlogservaring. Een van de vliegers was Theo Buijs, hij haalde drie overwinningen, maar sneuvelde op 24 juni 1941...Door de inval van Japan in Ned. Indie ging het hele plan niet door en werden de meer dan 100 Indische Spitfires over diverse squadrons (niet bij 167/322 Sqn) verdeeld. Lees het complete verhaal over 'onze' Spitfires...
