    Per Ardua ad Astra

This website stands as tribute to Adrian Laws and his part in the defence of British sovereignty in the summer of 1940. The six days of the battle chosen are those on which Laws was involved in a successful combat that ended in a destroyed or damaged raider. His loss in a flying accident and the circumstances and repercussions of that accident are also studied.

The site contains original combat reports courtesy of the Public Record Office and is illustrated with the wartime cartoons of "Pont" courtesy of Punch Magazine.
