BBC Cornwall shared this today

A special tribute has been paid by RNAS Culdrose in Cornwall to one of the last pilots from World War Two who were known as "the few".

Squadron Leader Geoffrey Wellum, who lived on the Lizard Peninsula, was the youngest Spitfire pilot to take part in the Battle of Britain and died last month at the age of 96.

The Cornwall naval base prepared a Spitfire before it performed a flypast - in tribute - over his funeral in Mullion.
