Publisher's Summary

Leslie Joy flew in World War II for the Royal Air Force (RAF) as a Lancaster Bomber Pilot. In November 2011, at the age of 88, he recorded this audiobook at his home in North Yorkshire, England.
Hear Les tell his very own gripping story about life during and after World War II. Listen to Les recall how he was trained by the RAF as a pilot in Canada, experienced New York City and Chicago as a young man and then how he returned to England to become one of Britain's World War II heroes. Les talks about his all Australian crewmates and their dangerous bombing missions across Germany and Europe. You can almost picture and hear the wartime scenes as Les recounts his missions flying Tiger Moths, Cessna Bobcats, the Oxbox and one of the most famous and best loved wartime fighting aeroplanes, the Lancaster Bomber.
This story is full of love, fun, jeopardy, danger and tragedy. It's a story not to be missed.

Joy by name, Joy by nature!

This ebook was a lovely surprise. It's more of an interview than an ebook with lots of laughter which really brings out the author, Les Joy's personality. I wish Les could narrate all my other ebooks.
Towards the end of the book Les states that he is 88 years old. This is amazing. He sounds about 50 and his memory of events is abnormally good!
I highly recommend this ebook to absolutely anyone.
I have googled Les but as yet can't find out that much about him. I do hope he's doing well.
If in the future someone asks me that question "Who in the world would you most like to have lunch with"? It won't be a difficult decision!
