A former RAF serviceman has donated a classic Spitfire painting to the Arbroath branch of Royal British Legion Scotland.

Jim Fullerton, 79, an SAC (Senior Aircraftman) based at RAF Tanmere in the 1960s, had left the picture to the branch in his will but has instead seen fit to make the gesture in the 75th year since the Battle of Britain.

Branch president Lt. Col. Ian Ballantyne said: “It is great to see Jim make a donation like this, especially in the anniversary year of the Battle of Britain.”
