A lovely story that strikes a balance between the typical life of a pre-War boy and the dedicated resolve of the young man who steps up to serve.
What's particularly nice is that the book also includes a diverse collection of pictures that cover many aspects of the author's journey. The general and family photographs provide some much-needed context to the threat that World War 2 posed, and it's difficult to not be moved by the later photographs of Mr Meller's Lancaster crew as they prepare to go in harm's way.
An enjoyable read. Greatly recommended to those with an interest in mid-century life, WW2 Allied service biographies and the RAF, in particular.
