Wing Commander C P "Paddy" Green, Commanding Officer of No. 600 Squadron RAF, watches from the cockpit of his Bristol Beaufighter Mark VIF at Cassibile, Sicily, as his radar operator, Flying Officer R J Gillies touches up the swastikas on the aircraft's nose, indicating the eight victories they had claimed while flying together as a night fighter crew. Seven of these victories were achieved during three consecutive nights in July over Sicily, four of them in a single sortie. Green had just been awarded the DSO for his skill and leadership of 600 Squadron, which he commanded until the end of January 1944.
