Contacting two friends, both aviation history devotees, the three men began their research into the ex-Lancaster wireless operators experiences. The result is the tale contained within this book, the extraordinary story of a young mans wartime service. At a time when Bomber Commands losses in aircraft and aircrew were only just beginning to peak, Leslie Smith arrived on his first operational squadron with his crew to begin their tour of thirty operations over Occupied Europe. Transferring to a Pathfinder squadron after fourteen hazardous operations, Leslie and the crew went on to complete another twenty-four before the end of the war.

This is his story.
