Beaus, Butchers and Boomerangs - Mareeba, the History...

...of a WWII Airfield 1942-1945.

Just bought this book from the author, Damian Waters. It is self-published and crammed full of great photos and stories. Very impressed with it. I see some familiar names (authors of this great site) and Peter Dunn from ozatwar contributed so good on ya, fellas!

"Silently into the Midst of Things" by Atholl Sutherland Brown is about 177 Sqn flying Beaus over Burma. Good read it is too!

B-24 fighter plane. That's a new one!
