A friend came across this little book (published 1944) in a second hand book shop.

It covers his time in the Tunisia campaign flying a spitfire.

Sadly it ends mid sentance on the day he went missing, very moving.

The book is Flying Officer W S Larges diary so it's not written as a book and is quite disjointed in parts, it really makes you apreciate the harshness of these young guys experiences.
