An Australian in Bomber Command
On 26 May 1943 David Scholes left Australia for the war over Europe - a twenty-year-old destined to survive his tour of thirty-five raids piloting a Lancaster bomber. From the day he departed until his return two years later he kept a dairy which, fifty years on, forms the basis of this vivid and honest account of life in Bomber Command. 'Air War Diary' reveals a young man with an uncommon perception and a talent for recording the practical and emotional details of an extraordinary experience.
