The story of a 17 year old who joined the RAF in 1935 to become a Royal Air Force fighter pilot. The author describes his day to day activities through from training to flying from airfields in England, Malta, Egypt, Gibraltar, Scotland and from aircraft carriers in the Fighting Fleet. During his 10 year career in the RAF, Hugh Garlick rose to Wing Commander and clocked over 1,750 flying hours, with half of them flown during wartime service.  He flew many types of aircraft, from early Harts to Spitfires, Blenheim bombers to float planes.  He flew many types of missions from bombing raids to long and dangerous convoy patrols. In wartime, he was seconded to the Fleet Air Arm and served from several warships including the ill fated H.M.S. Glorious and H.M.S Rodney.  At the war's end, he discovered he was the only survivor from the group of twenty that he had initially trained with who had gone on to flying duties. A poignant reminder of the inherent dangers of often flying in adverse weather conditions, while all the time facing a determined and ruthless enemy.

This story takes you back to a time of Empires and Colonies, when boys who while still teenagers, got their kicks, not from riding fast motorcycles, but from climbing into the cockpits of noisy and very powerful aeroplanes where they grew up to become men in single incidents. 

This lavish iBooks edition includes a glossary, is illustrated with 80 photographs from the photo albums of the author, and features an interactive photo gallery that enables full screen viewing.
