“Ginger” Stubbs was a cheeky little cockney sergeant pilot whose Hurricane was brought down inside the besieged fortress of Tobruk. Any other pilot would’ve flown right out again after repairs, but not Ginger. The Desert Rats of Tobruk were in trouble, so Ginger and his hard-hitting Hurricane decided to stick around and fight — and how he fought!
Even when he lost his Hurricane, he stole a Messerschmitt and carried right on shooting down Nazis, a lone eagle of a pilot guarding the precious sky above Tobruk.
