Douglas Bader was a famous fighter pilot from World War Two who had twenty-two kills credited to him. He flew and fought in the Battle of Britain with no legs – the result of a pre-war plane crash. Bader was an outstanding sportsman; when young he played rugby union for Harlequins, who are still an active club, at fly-half. He came close to English national team selection.
