Airmen Behind the Medals by Air Commodore Graham Pitchfork

Of the many human characteristics, few evoke greater admiration and respect than gallantry in the service of one’s country. Here, Graham Pitchfork describes the outstanding bravery of twenty-one air men who served in the Royal Air Force and the Fleet Air Arm during the Second World War. These accounts encompass most theatres of operation as well as a host of aircraft types and aircrew categories. Accounts of the gallantry of those who served on the ground in support of flying operations are also relayed in this substantial anthology.

The book explores the gallantry of airmen who fought in a variety of contexts, including that band of men who are so often forgotten, the Burma veterans. A gallant RAF sergeant and an RAF doctor who cared for and inspired fellow prisoners in Japanese camps are both included here, as are stories relating the extreme bravery of a Fleet Air Arm pilot, a Pathfinder pilot and a Typhoon wing leader. The valorous acts of these airmen serve as inspirational examples to a new generation of flying men and women. Graham Pitchfork extracts the drama and poignancy of their tales, enlivening them to great effect in this riveting publication that is sure to appeal broadly to enthusiasts of the era.

The Illustrated Diaries of Jim Maultsaid

RRP: £30.00
New volume coming soon, available to preorder now

Jim Maultsaid’s third and final book, Dawn of Victory, Thank You China! is based on his service with the 169 Chinese Labour Corps (CLC) between 1918-1919.

There were 96,000 Chinese volunteers in the CLC and their achievements have gone largely unrecognised for 100 years. As Jim Maultsaid’s diaries and drawings vividly testify, they made a stupendous and lasting contribution both during and in the aftermath of the Great War. He writes ‘Never did I see human beings work as we worked those Chinese boys of ours’. In all weathers, the Chinese turned their hands to every kind of task, initially keeping the wheels of war turning and after the Armistice clearing the debris of war and recovering the tens of thousands of anonymous dead.

Maultsaid’s down-to-earth prose and superb drawings capture the unique nature of the CLC’s efforts. His admiration for their stoic, indeed heroic efforts is obvious and, thanks to the preservation of these unique diaries, the coolies who toiled so tirelessly can at last receive long overdue credit. The author/artist served for over five years and was there to say goodbye and thank you to all those who served in his unit.
