About this Item: Letchworth, 1st ed., 1962. 231 pp., frontis., + photo-plates. D.j., 22 x 14cm. Repairs & chips to d.j., o/w V.G. Signed by the Author, C. Draper This is the autobiography of Christopher Draper, D.S.C., C.de G., known to thousands as "The Mad Major", for his daring flight under Tower Bridge in 1931 and for his even more spectacular exploit in May 1953, when, at the age of 61, he flew under 15 bridges between Waterloo and Kew. Lured into the air in the early, exciting days of flying, the author rubbed shoulders with such pioneers as Alcock and Hinkler, and with men like Salmond and Dowding who afterwards became top-ranking RAF Officers. He had a distinguished career in World War I and was decorated in March 1918. Few people can lay claim to such an unlikely combination of past activities as the Mad Major from a half-hour talk with Hitler to being invited to spy for the Germans and here he tells the full true story of his essay into counter-espionage under instruction from M.I.5. Although 47 years old at the outbreak of World War II, the author immediately enlisted in the Fleet Air Arm and recaptured some of the dare-devilry that had marked his early years. Signed by the Author. Seller Inventory # C140B394
