    Warburton's War by Tony Spooner DSO DFC

    If there's a travesty it's that Wing Commander Adrian (Warby) Warburton DSO & Bar DFC & 2 Bars DFC (USA) never received the Victoria Cross he so richly deserved. Posted to a photo reconnaissance squadron in Malta in 1940 he soon made a name for himself by outscoring fighter pilots to become the highest scoring 'ace' on the island. The recce photo's he brought back were always of the highest order. Marshal Of the RAF Lord Tedder calling him the most valuable pilot in the RAF. He was also called by his contemporaries the " Lawrence of Arabia of the air."

    Warby's P38 Lightning failed to return to RAF Mount Farm, Oxon, in april 1944. His crashed aircraft was only discoverd in Bavaria in 2003. Wing Commander Warburton was buried with full military honours at Durnbach War Cemetery.
