Canada's greatest ace in the Western Desert Campaign, initially flying the P-40, then the Supermarine Spitfire VIII in 1943 with 417 Squadron, and then towards the end of the war as 127 RCAF CO, replacing Johnnie Johnson. "Stocky" Edwards flew a staggering 373 operational sorties, never having been shot down, while confronting (and beating) several German aces. Retired from the RCAF in 1972 as Lt. Col.
