Master Bombers: The Experiences of a Pathfinder Sq&hellip by Sean Feast
A 'tour' was 45 operational trips........15 more than normal to take advantage of their experience .......
Thoroughly enjoyed this book with never a dull moment,but plenty of sadness at the loss of many brave young crews.

Think I paid just one penny for this book in 'new condition' delighted to find that it had been signed by the author and six of the aircrew featured in the book.....brilliant
The Buccaneer Boys: True tales by those who flew t&hellip by Graham Pitchfork
2.0 out of 5 stars OK FOR SOME, 19 Jun 2014
Does 'exactly what it says on the cover'......tells 'all about the boys'....I was hoping that this book would have been full of tales about what the the aircraft was like to fly....'hairy moments' 'carrier landings' etc etc. but alas book was all about 'The Boys' their youth, their education,joining the services, their postings, their promotions........dominated by many personnel group photos,with just a few previously not seen photos of the aircraft.
Perfect..... if you were part of the Buccaneer fraternity, having perhaps ;- manufactured, flown, or been part of a squadron,this book may have been ideal, but as a "Plane Crazy" enthusiast with no military service or interest… Read more
RAF Langham, 1940-1958: A Brief History Including &hellip by Len Bartram
3.0 out of 5 stars O K, 29 May 2014
Had hoped that small booklet would have had most of its content devoted to aircraft and operational stories......almost two pages devoted to a "musical concert party" with the names of those appearing//starring being duplicated........we are told about a cook cutting the tip of his finger off.......

Just a few words tell us that 34 different aircraft were operational at its peak around 1957/1958.....a complete list of these types would have been far more interesting

Having every edition of "Action Stations " and anything I could get hold of regarding military airfields, this was something different
