Spitfire "UD-W" Low Top Canvas Shoes
Did You Know?
This design is based on the Supermarine Spitfire as flown by Wing Commander Brendan “Paddy” Finucane, DSO, DFC & Two Bars (October 16th 1920 - July 15th 1942) whilst with 452 Squadron RAAF.
Born in Ireland in 1920, Finucane moved to England with his family in 1936, joining the RAF in 1938. On July 13, 1940 – after completing his Spitfire conversion training - he was posted to 65 Squadron RAF and only one month later on August 12th, scored his first victory.
Over the next 2 years Finucane was credited with 28 aerial victories, five probably destroyed, six shared destroyed, one shared probable victory, and eight damaged. Official records differ over the exact total. After the war, two of Finucane's victories that were credited as probables had, in fact, been destroyed, but were not officially included. His total victory count could be as high as 32 and some sources credit him this figure
In June 1942, aged only 21 yrs and 8 mths he became the RAF's youngest Wing Commander in its history, however, sadly only weeks later Finucane was killed when his Spitfire was damaged by ground-fire on a mission to France. Whilst attempting to fly back to England across the English Channel he was forced to ditch into the sea and subsequently vanished.
