- Not available
Many stories have been written about the exploits of pilots and observers of the Royal Flying Corps, but little has been written about the experiences of the 'ground staff'. These unsung heroes worked in atrocious field conditions to keep the primitive aircraft operational. This is one man's story of working as ground crew from June 1913 to November 1920. It is a close-up of operational life in the RFC and follows the author's experiences of many fronts during the war and shortly after. The author encounters many legendary heroes such as a young James McCudden and offers his observations of the way the war was fought.
