The Courage of the Small Hours by Helen Nall


ISBN-13: 9780956550019




In January, 1945, on separate occasions, two Lancaster Bombers crashed in fields close to the village of Hoveringham with the loss of both crews. Over six decades later, Helen Nall came across a fragment of aircraft alloy in one of the fields and decided to investigate further. In this remarkable account of the two incidents, she also covers the growth of Bomber Command and the construction of RAF Syerston and describes life for the bomber crews. 152pp, photos.

All proceeds from this book are being donated to the RAF Benevolent Fund and the Bomber Command Memorial Appeal.
