Brilliant. Find a copy and read it.

War in a Stringbag
Charles Lamb

Possibly the best book I've read by a WW2 combat flyer. The Fleet Air Arm doesn't get the love it deserves - those guys deserve to be legends.

Charles Lamb did it all: torpedo bombing, dive bombing, dodging fighters, in a plane that was obsolete before the war even began. He also flew missions for the SOE, and spent time in a Vichy POW camp in Algiers.

Really inspiring stuff. What are you waiting for? Go find a copy.

"With Naval Wings" is another cracking good read about life in the FAA.
