Tan Kay Hai, amazing WW2 fighter pilot from Singapore

When stories are told or written of Allied WW2 pilots’ exploits, most of the time, they are from Europe or the USA.

There is one story that needs to be shared, of a brave Asian pilot from Singapore, who flew for the RAF against the Germans during WW2 in many aircraft, including a P-51 Mustang photo-recon over the D-Day beaches, and was a member of the Caterpillar Club, and an escapee from a Stalag Luft POW camp!

The man is Wing Commander Tan Kay Hai, DFC.
