Written for Day 15 of A Month of Mini Writing Challenges 2017:

If you would like to participate in this challenge, please use the link above.

Write a 50-word story set in the year you were born.  You don’t have to declare what year that was 

The Battle of Britain Day took place on 15 September 1940 – five days after I was born.

Group Captain Sir Douglas Robert Steuart Bader Born 21 February 1910 – 5 September 1982) was a Royal Air Force (RAF) flying ace during the Second World War.

In 1931 Bader crashed and lost both his legs, he recovered, retook flight training, passed his check flights and reactivation as a pilot. 

He scored his first victories over Dunkirk during the Battle of France in 1940. He then took part in the Battle of Britain he was credited with 22 aerial victories, four shared victories, six probable, one shared probable and 11 enemy aircraft damaged.

This post is 110 words, sorry, Douglas Bader was a war hero, with no legs.

    • Pleased to be of help, I appreciate this comment, it’s not very often you get a comment like this, at first I didn’t know what it was you were commenting about, Day 15 of the mini writing challenge, I was a little unsure myself, but that is what I wrote about, something from my childhood days that happened the year of my birth and have never forgotten a remarkable man.
      Was I was right, even if it’s not right, I wrote something and that’s what these challenges are all about, giving us ideas to stop us from getting writer’s block.
      Hope you are having a nice day.
