My name is Leslie Joy (Les to my friends), and I was born on the 16th March 1923 in Bradford, Yorkshire. This is my true story of how at the age of 19 I joined the RAF, fell in love with a Tiger Moth, got my wings and flew as a Lancaster Bomber pilot in World War II, and survived just!

The Diary Of A RAF Lancaster Pilot

Very dissappointing. A tedious chronology and a waste of money that i could have spent better. I believe it should be removed from your book store.

With all due respect to Leslie Joy, this unfortunately is not a good read, I read it in just under an hour and it was just a short and boring factual account of the steps he went through from when he was a boy to present day, you get absolutely no idea of what it was like piloting a large aircraft over war torn Germany, the terror, the challenges etc. This should really be something that is called a vanity publication, only to be read by family and close friends. Do not waste your money.

Very poorly written. Les should have employed an assistant to beef up the experiences. I am sure many of his situations could have been researched to give the reader a clearer. Picture of life as a WW2. Pilot. Andy foley

It was a fair read typifying just what life was like at the latter end Of the war. It showed all to easily just how we treat those guys on Their return to civilian life, not too well sadly.
