Description:pencil previous owners name inside cover. These narrative diaries from World War II were written by Roland Beamont who served with fighter squadrons from 1939 at the age of 19. Three "tours" of fighter operations included: Hurricane daytime air defence in France in the Battle of Britain in 1940; night-fighting defence of Bristol, Cardiff and Plymouth in 1941; typhoon ground attack operations over the Channel and Low Countries in 1942-3; tempest operations throughout the "D" Day period in 1944 and subsequently defence against V1 flying bomb attacks. In September 1944, Beamont was moved to Volkel, the most advanced base of the RAF's 2nd Tactical Air Force in Holland and on 13th October 1944 became a prisoner of war. The last part of the diaries was written in Luckenwalde PoW camp near Potsdam in 1945 as the Allied forces made their final drive across Germany to victory.
