He was credited with 10 to 13 confirmed aerial victories against the Japanese, flying the Brewster Buffalo and later the P-40 Warhawk. He is believed to be the highest-scoring British Commonwealth ace in the Pacific theater. After the war, Fisken returned to his pre-war occupation as a farmer.  Read the obituary on the Telegraph or Fisken’s Wikipedia page.
