This is a specially produced glossy bookplate bearing the original signature of Battle of Britain Hurricane Pilot Christopher Foxley - Norris.

With his training completed he went to the School of Army Co-operation at Old Sarum and then joined 13 Squadron at Douai in France.
Back in England after the collapse of France, Foxley-Norris volunteered to serve in Fighter Command and he was posted to 5 OTU Aston Down on 7th September 1940 to convert to Hurricanes.
He joined 111 Squadron at Drem on 29th September but this was an error and he went instead to 3 Squadron at Turnhouse on 30th September 1940 and moved to 615 Squadron at Northolt on 19th November.
On 26th February 1941 Foxley-Norris was jumped by Me109s and shot down in flames from 25000 feet in Hurricane IIa Z2754. He baled out, landing near Elmsted, east of Ashford, where he met with a hostile reception from the local population who were convinced that he was German. His Hurricane came down at Little Holt Farm.
