Blurb:

This is the account of the life of a small Royal Australian Air Force Radar Unit in the islands of New Guinea during World War II. Told in a simple manner by two members of the unit, it follows their experiences in those uncertain days of Australia’s darkest time.

While not as glamorousas the fly-boys these radar operators often faced equal dangers and deprivations as they operated on the front line of the Pacific war. Their insights are honest and amusing. This manusrcript was the inaugural winner of the Royal Australian Air Force Heritage Award for literature in 1988. The authors are to be commended for their initiative and dedication in producing ther story of their war.
