From the rear side cover: Richars Starkey lives in Royston in Barnsley, and in 1941 when he was 18 he volunteered for the Royal Air Force. He received his pilots wings in Canada in 1942 and completed his training in England before joining 106 Squadron, 5 Group Bomber Command in October 1943 to fly Lancasters. He operated between October 1943 and March 1944 on deep penetration targets in atrocious weather conditions, mostly during the Battle for Berlin. He was shot down on his 22nd operation, and Dick had a miraculous escape trying to control his blazing Lancaster carrying a full bomb load, when the petrol tanks exploded and he was hurled unconcious into the night sky...
The condition of the book is generally ok. The paper wrapper has some minor scuffs and blemishes, and some light wear along the edges, and the actual covers have further wear and creasing along the edges and corners, but the staple binding is intact and all pages are intact, unblemished and tightly bound.
The book has been bound with glue, which has started to come away, and the inside front cover is now beginning to become detached from the main body of the book and the spine. A staple has been punched through the left hand edge of the main body of the book as a further binding
