These are the high-spirited reminiscences of a brilliant pilot, telling of the planes he flew - and the crashes he survived - as a Naval airman in the First World War. Having gained his Royal Aero Club pilot's certificate in 1914 after only two-and-a-half hours flying, Flight Sub-Lieutenant Moore, RN, soon found himself flying Sopwith Scouts on seaplane patrols. Stationed on the Isle of Grain, he also flew experimental aircraft including a captured German Albatross.
