Graham Hulse was most successful RAF pilot of the Korean War, but as Andrew Thomas relates, his war record was far greater than officially acknowledged

Summer 1945, and 25-year-old Flight Lieutenant Graham Hulse had a decision to make. Having flown single-seat fighters with some success during World War Two, he elected to remain in the RAF.
Initially serving on aerial policing duties in Palestine, he later trained as a flying instructor. However, following the outbreak of the Korean War in 1950, Hulse volunteered for service and went on attachment to the US Air Force.
