Description

Limited edition, numbered up on the case back.  47mm watchcase, 100% stainless steel, with leather strap and Miyota movement.  On May 28th, 1940 Belgium was overwhelmed by the German army and is forced to surrender. However, many pilots manage to escape the occupation and join allied air forces (Canadian, American, South-African and most numerous, the Royal Air Force) to continue the fight. ­ e experience and training of these pilots is invaluable to the RAF (where shortage of pilots will indeed rapidly become the major problem), and 15 of the newly arrived Belgians are immediately assigned to the RAF’s fighter squadrons and take part in the Battle of Britain. On June 5th, 1944, at 2315h, the 349th assists to the briefing of Operation Neptune – the long-awaited landing in Normandy. ­ e 6th., the afternoon mission - at 1450h - however opposes 349’s pilots to a couple of Ju88s – 2 of which are seriously damaged. From June 10th onwards, 349 continues its missions from the mainland flying from Sainte-Croix-sur-Mer (France). Its Spits mainly fly escort and ground attack missions
