Rick also asked the HAA to mention a book written by Air Marshal Black Robertson entitled “Fighters in the Blood – The Story of a Spitfire Pilot – And the Son Who Followed in His Footsteps”. It is a similar book from two pilots who were both ex 92 Sqn fighter pilots, known as Cobras. Here is a link to his publisher’s web page.
Air Commodore Rick Peacock-Edwards has just published his autobiography and as you would expect, it is a fascinating tale of flying, friendship and fun. Aviation is a thread that runs through Rick’s life and started with the pride for his father as a Battle of Britain pilot. His RAF career is distinguished and would fulfil many a boyhood dream. For those that know Rick, his energy and involvement in so many organisations will come as no surprise. Naturally the HAA is included in the narrative of Rick’s life.
