This homage amounts to only one word… recognition.

Dennis Connelly flew probably with this Free French pilot…
Same squadron. He was also at Dieppe.
This video is in French.

Jean Maridor was chasing a V-1 in 1944.
He shot it down when it was falling on a hospital.

On August 3,1944, during one of these dangerous operations Captain Jean Maridor saw a V1 directy falling on a hospital in Benenden. Unable to tilt it with his wing as pilots did, he followed right behind firing at point blank range leaving himself no way out after the V-1 explosion. He sacrificed his life destroying his 6th flying bomb, his disintegrated Spitfire crashing near the hospital he had just saved.
