Flyers Far Away: Australian Aircrew in Europe during World War II
Flying with Britain's Royal Air Force, Australian airmen made a remarkable contribution to the allied cause during the Second World War. Over 15,000 Australian's flew in Europe, scattered across five hundred British squadrons of the Royal Air Force. As they did not serve as a cohesive national force, their contribution has been largely overlooked. No other country gave so much at a time when its own shores were under attack. No other country sent their flyers so far away from home. At last these courageous Australian airmen are given their rightful place in the history of the European air war.
