    George 'Ben' Bennions enlisted in the pre-war RAF in 1929, serving first as an 'erk' before being selected for pilot training. His first posting was in the Middle East with 41 Squadron, but by May 1940 the Squadron was back in Catterick, and during that summer, Bennions was to destroy or damage 20 enemy planes before being severely wounded and becoming one of Archibald McIndoe's Guinea Pigs. This biography tells the full story of a man 'born to fly'.
