Privately printed by the author in 1993, 76 pages. A4 size booklet (A13GWSO)

From the foreword: Narratives of wartime experiences based on recollections after a considerable lapse of time (amounting in many cases to the passage of up to fifty years) are of necessity very broad and generalised in their content. I did not keep a diary, but when I found among my wartime memorabilia most of the detailed navigation logs for each of the operational sorties in which I took part, it occurred to me that they provided an opportunity to narrate these particular events as a minute-by-minute record of what actually happened on typical bomber raids on Germany and the French ports in 1941. As I took up my pen to translate these records into more readable form (they are the basis of chapter 3 of this book) I thought that the varied activities of my life might as well be added to form a complete autobiography.

The contents include early days, wartime training, ops in a Whitley, Halcyon Days, back in harness, westward ho, and countdown to civvy street.

The condition of the booklet is generally ok. The covers have several scuffs, blemishes and creases, and further creasing and wear along the edges and corners, but the spine is intact and all pages are intact, unblemished and bound. Please note the booklet was produced privately, and so lacks the finish of a more professional publication - i.e all the ohotos are of photocopy quality. But none of this detracts from the fascinating contents!
