The unique and revealing story of a modest man who made a major contribution.

Beaufighter strike photos - rockets.

One of the unique features of this book is the inclusion of rare strike photos, including one of the first uses of rockets.

Here are two of Dad's views attacking one of two destroyers off Grave's Point in the Gironde Estuary (a landlocked harbour in southwest France near Bordeaux ).

First is Dad's view of another beaufighter (S/L William Richie Christison D.F.C) passing directly over the point of impact after releasing rockets.

The second photo shows Dad's view after releasing his own rockets.
