"How welcome a sight as nine of our fighters arrived. Straight into the Huns they went and soon those Jerries were screaming towards the earth in flames, while the others streaked away as fast as their planes would carry them".

"A heavy bomb dropped near us and we shuddered badly. The next one I thought had us, for we went down with a wall of water towering above us on all sides" .

You may have already heard Episode 11, The Bee - this version is the much longer and complete version and is highly recommended.

Great, unpublished history!
