Only 28% of Bomber Command aircrew made it through World War II without being killed, seriously injured, or becoming a PoW. Nearly 58,000 Bomber Command personnel lost their lives during the conflict.
George Culling was a 19-year-old Lancaster navigator whose own experiences often involved battling tricky and dangerous conditions. Fascinated by the ever-present dangers for airmen even well away from combat, he has collated tales from comrades and combined them with his own to preserve some of the unexpected, inconvenient, dangerous, and often downright bizarre experiences that frequently typified daily life for airmen in the Second World War.
