From his beginning as Bill Hooper's personal cartoon "doodle" decorating the wall of "A" Flight's hut, the affable dimwit known as Pilot Officer Prune served right through the war, was posted to every command and even found himself "Out East". The little Spitfire pilot became the first example of a visual aid for technical training, showing thousands of aircrew all over the world how not to do it. In this book his creator Bill Hooper and Tim Hamilton trace the life and times of the plum nose character who proved such a successful anti-hero with the RAF and who doubtless saved many lives. Using drawings from the period, Bill Hooper's anecdotes and wherever possible original documents, this book should appeal to those with a keen interest in the RAF or aviation, or those who appreciate the humour of this cartoon character.
