Fighters in the Blood

Some of you will have read bits of this before (A Spitfire Pilot) in this thread when I transcribed my fathers’ memories and started to drip feed them in this thread. A couple of years ago my brother wrote down his own thoughts on his career in the RAF, drawing parallels to those of our fathers’ experiences. At the same time I rediscovered over a hundred of his letters to our mother between 1939 t0 1945. Sadly neither parent had the opportunity to re-read their words and so my brother intertwined these letters giving a whole new light to the events of 75+ years ago.

Encouraged to have them printed by Pen & Sword, the result is a fascinating and insightful record of what it was really like to be a fighter pilot then and again in the 60s onwards.

“Fighters in the Blood” is the result and I hope you will enjoy reading it as much as we both did.
