Reviews

`This wonderful book is entertaining and thoroughly engaging. The quality speaks for itself and I have no hesitation in recommending it to you.' War History Online; `An absorbing book... well illustrated throughout.' Flypast; `Comprehensively illustrated, and filled with outstanding tales of the excitement of Buccaneer flying in both peacetime and war. Buccaneer Boys is an excellent read. For those who served during the 60s to 90s Cold War period, it is a must. For anyone with an interest in aviation, it is a most enjoyable book. Air Mail; `An excellent insight into the aircraft and those who flew it.' Britain at War; `The descriptions of flying activities and incidents are vivid, some of the anecdotes are laugh-out-loud amusing and references to that sense of `community' and a real affection for the aeroplane just keep cropping up. I strongly recommend this book. It's a very good and entertaining read.' RAF Historical Society Journal; `This book takes pride of place on the shelf at home and no doubt will be read again and again and not be left on the shelf too often - Recommended.' Vintage & Classic; It's a very pacey and painlessly readable, often exciting, and sometimes poignant assemblage of reminiscences from "Buccaneer world"...In affecting and arresting style this recent publication conveys why the Buccaneer meant so much to its crews and engendered such persistent esprit de corps in their "club".' Derek Reed, Vice President of Yorkshire Air Museum
