Product Overview

At the age of 19, Eric Gardner joined the RAF. His witty observations of day-to-day life as an airman in wartime Britain and Canada give a fascinating insight into the life experienced by many ordinary men and women, from all backgrounds, who were brought together by World War Two. Like many of his generation, Eric did not receive a higher education and was unable to fulfil his obvious potential. In later life, he often commented that the RAF had been his University. Eric thought his wartime experiences would be of little interest to anyone else because he did not see any active service. His family thankfully did not agree and encouraged him to commit his memories to paper. He finished the manuscript just days before his sudden death at the age of 82 and so, sadly, Eric never saw it in print.
