The best device for reading, full stop. Learn more
Another previously overlooked figure from WW2, Gordon Mellor's own account of his exploits as he joins 103 Squadron in one of those Lincolnshire airfields of which we spoke a few books further up the page, and then the fateful raid where he has to bale out into enemy territory and finds himself in the hands of the resistance is both compelling and inspirational. ― Books Monthly --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
About the Author
In 1940 Gordon Mellor was called up and joined the RAF, training in the UK and Canada as a navigator. Gordon's war years, serving with Bomber Command, were particularly dramatic and he left the service in 1946 as Flight Lieutenant. He passed his final Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors exams, and worked in the Parks and Recreation department of the London County Council. In 1943 Gordon had married Daphne, and the birth of two children in 1947 and 1950 completed the family. In 1968 they all moved to North Wembley, London, where Gordon still lives. Membership of a number of associations enabled Gordon to keep up with old friends, especially those associated with the Comète escape line. Gordon was also a Trustee of the Executive Committee of the Bomber Command Association during planning and construction of the Bomber Command Memorial in London's The Green Park. --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
