Robert Hale First edition, first impression 1962.  189 pages with 13 photographs.

Fine condition hardback book in a Fine condition unclipped dustjacket. Both are in exceptionally good condition for their age and the book looks very smart in a protective cover.

The biography of the brave and modest young sergeant pilot who for many years was almost unknown outside the RAF. Some excerpts from the Dustjacket ‘Blurb’:

Battle of Britain Top Scorer ~ First Spitfire Over Japan ~ Toughest CO in Burma ~ The man who shot down the Heinkel that bombed Buckingham Palace. “In this book, a fellow pilot unravels the story of one of the greatest of The Few; the legendary eccentric, inspired humourist, hunter of the air and the deadliest marksman of them all.”

A very nice true first edition copy of this scarce book with its striking Biro jacket artwork, enhanced by a neatly presented Lacey signature.
