Kittyhawk in the sights

Written by

Our hero was raised on a farm and had little training as a soldier seeing that he was an army cook. Thus, within the first few days of being on the battlefront, he noticed a German plane in hot pursuit of an Allied Kittyhawk and grabbed his gun.

Needless to say, his officers were not impressed by his shooting at an enemy plane independently and he was very nearly court martialled. Read BATTLEFRONT COOK IN EGYPT AND ITALY (available as e-book) to see what happened to his gun.

Kleintyd sonder televisie was ‘n groot seën vir my pa se sewe kinders - wanneer die gier hom gepak het en hy begin oorlogstories vertel het, het ons aan sy lippe gehang.  Die enigste klagte: dat die gier soms wyk en die storie dan sommer opdroog.  Ons kon dit ook nie na willekeur aanskakel nie
