During World War 2, survival was by no means a certainty with casualties a part of everyday life. The evolution of non-established clubs was recognized as an area that boosted moral. This book tells of stories on being a ‘Goldfish' (Lives saved by preservers and dinghies), ‘Caterpillar' (Lives saved by parachutes) or ‘Guinea Pig' (Lives saved by pioneering surgery).


The RAF and Commonwealth air crews were bound by regulations and discipline during WWII. Survival was by no means a certainty, with casualties becoming a part of everyday life. The evolution of non-established clubs was recognised and regarded as an important area within RAF history that boosted moral. The regulations flexed to allow membership pins and badges to be worn on RAF and Commonwealth flying uniforms.
