Over the Western Front

'Over the Western Front' tells the story of a front line Royal Flying Corps squadron, fighting on the Western Front during the whole of the Great War. The first part has been written in the form of a journal, telling those at home in England how the war is progressing, as experienced by a wireless mechanic who is serving with 6 Squadron. Though written in the words of the author, the journal is based on the war diaries kept by his grandfather between November 1915 and January 1918. More than fifty photographs are included, most of which appear in print for the first time. The second part of the book details the operational history of 6 Squadron for the whole of the Great War, from October 1914 until December 1918, including details of every aircraft on charge with the squadron, the casualties sustained by 6 Squadron and significant events, for each of the twenty-seven months. An appendix section contains profiles of a number of 6 Squadron pilots and observers, as well as extracts from the author's first book, 'For God, England & Ethel'.
