Fighting memories

From Mr Patrick Bishop Sir: If any Spectator readers have unpublished letters or diaries by family members who belonged to or were connected with Fighter Command between 1936 and 1945, I would be very pleased to hear from them. The material is for possible inclusion in Fighter Boys, a study of RAF pilots, which has been commissioned by HarperCollins. All manuscripts will be treated with discretion and handled with care.
