by Ted Rayner

WW2 experiences of a Hudson pilot with 269 Squadron in Norway, Iceland and Greenand

This informative and enjoyable memoir by former Coastal Command pilot Ted Rayner gives a compelling account of his flying activities during World War Two, which involved numerous patrols over the North Sea and Arctic Ocean, flying from bases in Norway, Iceland and Greenland.

His account of RAF activities in this lesser-known theatre of war is a fitting tribute to the many Coastal Command crews who perished in the icy Arctic waters while performing the dangerous but invaluable role of protecting Allied shipping against enemy attacks.
