Free French pilot who died at Dieppe on August 19th, 1942.
Overwhelming portrait of Adjutant Emile Fayolle. He was a Free French pilot in the RAF,a Battle of Britain veteran,Fayolle was sadly shot down by Anti-Aircraft fire during the Op. Jubilee in 1942.
He is wearing the early-WW2 usual British headgear: the iconic B helmet,the not very efficient Mk IIIA googles and the crude D oxy mask.
His stare burns.
