Sgt Babbage lighting a cigarette, Bognor, 26 Aug 1940

On the beach at Bognor Regis close to the pier, the rescued pilot is accompanied by policemen and soldiers. Sgt Cyril Babbage belonged to 602 City of Glasgow Squadron, based at Westhampnett. He was shot down in his Spitfire off Bognor during the Battle of Britain. The pier can be seen in the background; the central section is missing, removed to prevent the Germans from using it as a landing stage.
