Eric Crundall joined the Royal Naval Air Service for training as a pilot in June 1916. He served in number eight squadron and then the newly created RAF until the end of the war. This book is his exciting day to day diary of his patrols flying triplanes, and then Sopwith Camels. He recounts in simple but graphic detail the dog-fights, the kills and the losses.
