Johnny Kent grew up in Winnipeg and was bitten by the flying bug at an early age. He grabbed experience and flying hours wherever and whenever he could and was constantly on the lookout for a career in aviation. His chance came when he was offered a short service commission with the RAF in the 1930s. He shot down ten enemy aircraft during the Battle of Britain and became the leader of one of the most successful fighter squadrons of the conflict - the famous Polish No. 303 Squadron. It is a story of triumphant achievement in combat and of a man whose air force career certainly picked him out as 'One of the Few'.
