A unique contemporary account of the epic air battle of Malta as related by fighter pilots of No. 185 Squadron, among them Flight Lieutenant H.W. `Chubby' Eliot, Sergeant Garth E. Horricks and Sergeant J.W. `Slim' Yarra. For nearly eighteen months the squadron saw continual action, finally helping to win the air war over Malta before taking the fight to the enemy by bombing and strafing targets in support of Allied ground forces during the Italian campaign. From the first day of squadron operations on 1 May 1941 until the squadron was disbanded on 14 August 1945 pilots recorded events in an unofficial squadron diary. Supplemented with rare combat and intelligence reports, 185: The Malta Squadron is a humorous and often poignant account, with explanatory notes by Anthony Rogers that provide a clear and authoritative overview of events.
