OUR AIR FORCE
British boys and girls, everywhere, both old and young, were never more keenly interested in the men and machines of Our Air Force, than to-day.
Dull apathy vanished suddenly one September morning, when Britons awoke to a full realisation of what Our Air Force really meant to them.
Boys, and girls too, now envy, with all their hearts, the young men whose privilege it is to wear the Air Force Blue, and to sweep across the sky in those mechanical marvels of to-day -"Spitfires," Hurricanes," Defiants," "Whirlwinds," "Tornados," "Wellingtons," Skuas,' Blenheims," "Hudsons," "Hampdens," "Halifaxes." "Stirlings," "Liberators," and the rest. Do you know which are the fighters and which are the bombers? Are you more thrilled by the work of Pilot, Gunner or Observer? Or perhaps your interest is centred on the work of the ground staff, the fitters, instrument makers, armourers, electricians, photographers, wireless operators, engineers, or even chemists.
Every phase in the lives of these men is of interest to us all now, and here, in picture and story, we have endeavoured to bring you into real contact with the men and machines of OUR AIR FORCE.
