Format: Hardcover
Sub-Title: Flying With RAF Bomber and Coastal Commands in World War II

After being shot down over Europe Leslie Baveystock escaped occupied Europe via the vaunted Comet escape line. This meant that he was to be assigned duties that did not involve flying over Nazi occupied territory because of the knowledge he had about the Comet line.

He was then assigned to flying Short Sunderland flying boats on maritime patrol. His first success was to locate and attach the German armed blockade-runner Alsterufer north-west of the Azores. Later, he attacked and sank two German U-Boats.

This is the story of a British pilot who fought through all of World War II, he flew on 587 flights (311 in Sunderlands) in 94 separate aircraft. In spite of several close calls, he was never injured, never crashed except that one time when they were shot down and the went down by chute. He survived the war and lived another fifty years.
