Saint Praftu (Paperback)Murray Anderson (author)
Paperback 392 Pages
Part 1 of 'Saint Praftu' describes the author's early childhood in India, his wartime service in the RAF, and twenty years of civil flying in Burma, India and Nepal. At one period during the War, he belonged to the select group of pilots who undertook the hazardous operation of flying Lysanders to France at night during the moon periods, to land and pick up Resistance agents. Part 2 includes graphic descriptions of dramatic events whilst ferrying pilgrims on their annual visits to Mecca, extraordinary feats of survival in appalling flying conditions, and hilarious adventures in Kathmandu with Bahadur Singh, fellow resident in the famous Royal Hotel.
