Wings Aflame - Doug Stokes A truly inspiring story about a most remarkable man - Victor Beamish - who, upon joining the RAF in the early 1920s as a flight cadet and matriculated at Cranwell, established a fine record as a pilot and leader. Later, after being compelled to leave the RAF in 1933 because of a debilitating illness that almost killed him, Beamish, by sheer force of will and desire to return to active service, overcame his illness, was readmitted into the RAF in 1937, and during the early years of the war (til his death), established a fine combat record.
