About the Author

Colin Pateman lives in the South of England having spent his working life as a Police Officer, retiring after 32 years' service. His key roles were as a handler of specialist search dogs, a Home Office qualified instructor and later trained by the Royal Engineers to qualify as a Police Search Advisor. Colin is an avid collector of aviation memorabilia and gains great satisfaction from gathering and preserving personal accounts of pilots and aircrews of the Second World War. His other aviation related publications by Fonthill include 'Goldfish Caterpillars and Guinea pigs', 'Unwanted Hero', 'Unshackled Spirit' and 'Glorious in Solitude'.


"Much of the material in the book derives from official records, personal logbooks and the accounts of the aircrews themselves. It will undoubtedly prove useful to those interested in military aviation and the history of WWII."-- (01/01/2018)
