'Success with No. 242.'<br />
<br />
The remarkable story of a prolific RAF hero who achieved 'ace' status in just two-and-a-half hours of flying has come to light after his medals were put up for sale.<br />
<br />
Squadron Leader Ronald Fairfax Hamlyn went up in his Spitfire three times on August 24, 1940, at the very height of the Battle of Britain.<br />
<br />
He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Medal which, along with the rest of his medals, is being sold in London for an estimated £60,000.
