SpitFIRE PILOT MEMORIES

 

 

The author kept a detailed diary throughout his service.

Allen Stening joined the RAAF training initially at No 4 VTS Victor Harbour South Australia. Further training in Australia was carried out at No 1 EFTS Parafield No 2 SFTS Wagga and No 7 SFTS Deniliquin. He transferred directly to England and flew with 167 Squadron Ludham, Digby, Hornchurch and Westhampnett. Then was sent to Africa and on to Italy with 253 Squadron.
On May 4th 1944, he was shot down over Yugoslavia and
was taken POW.

He had up to this point flown 547 hours.
I found this to be a great read with the author adding every little detail about training, flying Spitfires to his diary.

The book was published by his wife (married before his war service) from Allen's Diary, log book.
Allen died in September 1995.
