Group Captain Sir Douglas Bader, CBE DSO & Bar, DFC & Bar, FRAeS, DL; (21 February 1910 – 5 September 1982) was a  flying ace of the Royal Air Force during the Second World War. He was credited with 22 aerial victories, four shared victories, six probables, one shared probable and 11 enemy aircraft damaged. Due to an accident before the war he lost his legs in a  crash conducting aerobatics. W3185 was an early Mk.Va ,probably converted from Mk.I

As a Wing Commander's prerogative his initials D-B was used on his plane. This Spitfire was used in RAF Sqn. 616, Tangmere, which was shot down in 1941 and he was subsequently taken prisoner. RAF Tangmere Wing consisted of Squ 145, 610 and 616.

NOTE: Whether the “Kicking Hitler” insignia was used on his Spitfire is debatable ( probably unlikely), definately on his Hurricane. I have seen it on many models and skins from other sims, but with a bit of licence I have added it and “Lord Lloyd I”.
