Product Description

From the Publisher

An exciting find and a privilege to publish. Bill Wilkinson's memoirs of his war-time flying career are a fascinating read as well as being an important social document about the Second World War.

From the Author

The author died in April 2000 and soon after his daughter found the handwritten memoir, hidden in the back of a cupboard. She has edited it with a very light hand so Bill's voice comes through very strongly.

Format: Paperback
This book is the memoirs of an RAF fighter pilot in the Battle of Britain. It's unusual because it was never intended for publication - the pilot's daughter found the manuscript after he died. It's an easy to read, detailed account of life in 501 Squadron during the War, and includes plenty of original photographs too. Highly recommended.
