On 15 September 1940, Holmes saved Buckingham Palace from being hit by German bombing, when he used his Hawker Hurricane to destroy a Dornier Do 17 bomber over London by ramming but at the loss of his own aircraft (and almost his own life) in one of the defining moments of the Battle of Britain. He was feted by the press as a war hero for his saving of Buckingham Palace. The British pilot became a King's Messenger after the war, and died at the age of 90 in 2005.

One of the crew managed to bail out who was immediately lynched by members of the public. The bomber finally crashed into the forecourt of Victoria train station.

There are many recorded incidents of this sort of thing happening, here is a symposium on the murder of allied personnel.
