The unusual story of Bernard ‘Barney’ Hart-Hallam, who served as a policeman with the Provost Marshal’s Branch of the RAF in 2nd Tactical Air Force (2TAF).
On D-Day, Barney was the first RAF man to set foot on ‘Juno’ beach. From then on, following close behind the front-line troops, he and his colleagues in No.6 RAF Security Section were responsible for maintaining security in the wake of the Allied advance across Europe.
In a world turned upside down, they rounded up collaborators, spies and fleeing Nazis, were entertained by gangsters & good-time girls, and encountered a whole host of colourful characters. Their unique adventures are described with great humour and flair in this entertaining memoir.
