An MP has joined a campaign to commemorate the brave pilots and navigators who served in operations during the Second World War.

The Photographic Reconnaissance Units (PRU) flew solo, unarmed and unarmoured and took vital photographs from the air helping provide up-to-date intelligence.

It was highly dangerous and nearly 50% of those in the PRU died, including Ronald Atkinson from New Southgate and Ralph Metcalf from Winchmore Hall.

Despite having one of the lowest survival rates of the war, there is no national memorial to the PRU.

Enfield Southgate Labour MP Bambos Charalambous says he is supporting the Spitfire AA810 Project which is leading the fight to establish a memorial in central London.

Mr Charalambous said: "I am delighted to support this fantastic campaign to commemorate those who served in the Photographic Reconnaissance Units.

"This includes Ronald Atkinson and Ralph Metcalf, who served admirably under exceptionally difficult conditions, and who ultimately gave their lives in service of our country.

"I look forward to working with the Spitfire AA810 Project to establish this memorial and I look forward to being able to pay my respects there once it is completed."
