Episodes & Studies Volume 2


page 2

VERY few people are aware that New Zealand airmen played a prominent, almost predominant, part in the defence of Malaya and Burma in 1941–42. It is recorded in this number of the Episodes series, and the record is a very fine one of devoted and desperate service by these youngsters against literally overwhelming odds. Nor is No. 1 Construction Squadron very well known. It gave splendid service in Malaya, survived many vicissitudes with sang-froid, and had a remarkable and highly creditable experience on SS Darvel, here related.

This is the 20th number of the Episodes and Studies series, to be completed in 24 numbers. Binding cases may be obtained from booksellers.
