Hardcover, printed in Australia in 1945. 7 1/4 by 9 1/2 inches, 132 pages. The cover features a color rendition of the Disney-designed unit patch. The unit flew supply and transport missions in the southwest Pacific theater of operations beginning in 1943, flying C-46 and C-47 transports as well as armed B-17F Flying Fortresses from February to May 1944 for the more hazardous missions that involved landing on fields that were under enemy attack. The book shows typical signs of age but overall it is in very good condition.
