Three Passions and a Lucky Penny


For nearly 30 years Dr Eric Stephenson was a medical officer in the RAAF. In this autobiography he describes his early life in England, the experience of being shot down in a Lancaster bomber over Germany, and life as a prisoner of war. After the war he became a country doctor in Norfolk, and in 1955 he resumed wearing Air Force blue, only this time in Australia. 'Doc' Stephenson has become an institution in the RAAF. Soft cover, photographs, 160 pages.
