No. 21C155 Fighter Pilot – 1947

The light pacifics were designed by O.V.S. Bulleid to work over the restricted secondary routes of the Southern Railway. Two naming themes were used; ‘West Country’ and the ‘Battle of Britain’. The ‘Battle of Britain’ locomotives were named in tribute to the personalities, aircraft, RAF stations and squadrons involved in the 1940 air battle.

No. 21C155 Fighter Pilot was named to honour ‘the few’. The official naming took place at Brighton Station on the seventh anniversary of the Battle of Britain and was carried out by Group Captain Douglas Bader. Fighter Pilot was renumbered 34055 by BR in July 1949 and remained in original condition until withdrawal. It is portrayed as named.
