Farnes was also the last remaining member of the group who was healthy enough to attend a memorial day event last year.
Farnes was “very proud” of his Distinguished Flying Medal, the Battle of Britain Memorial Trust said. He was responsible for the destruction of six enemy planes, the damage of six others, and the probable destruction of another.
In 2015, Farnes and others received spontaneous applause at a service in their honor at Westminster Abbey.
“It was very emotional today because, when we walked out of the abbey, the audience applauded and it’s never happened before at the annual service and I was very moved by it,” he said at the time.
“It is amazing that the Battle of Britain has caught on with the public and I am very proud to have been a part of it.”
