The moving story of youths turning to young men as they fight a well equipped and determined enemy with outmoded equipment and often in appalling conditions. Perhaps lacking the glamour of flying from the great carriers, those who flew from MAC ships (merchant ships converted to carry aircraft) nonetheless made a huge contribution to winning the Battle of the Atlantic.

Sub Lt Stanley Brand pranged W5856, the world's oldest flying Fairey Swordfish, in 1944 due to an engine failure on take off. We're happy to report that W5856 currently resides in our hangar and is a very popular addition at air displays around the UK.

The Battle of the Atlantic has probably never been given the vitally important place in our history that it deserves and this especially applies to the MAC ships (Merchant Aircraft Carriers) that did so much to defeat the U boat menace by providing air cover in the Mid Atlantic gap. Stanley Brand's beautifully crafted and amusingly written book is a worthy tribute to all those amazingly brave and resourceful men who, with the barest of equipment and in unimaginably appalling conditions, did so much to win the battle.
