Memories of an Australian pilot during World War Two.

Here he provides a detailed account of the life of a pilot from enlistment and initial training in Australia, through training in Canada and the United Kingdom, to life in an operational Bomber Command Squadron. He brings out the daily issues facing people on operations that resulted in sacrificial loss rates, while still living reasonably comfortably on bases in England. Soft cover, photographs, 222 pages.
