James Atterby McCairns tells the story in his own words of his time with No. 161 (Special Duties) Squadron in 1942-43.

Following his escape from Germany with the help of the Belgian Comet organisation, Mac resolved to do what he could to help the Resistance. He made 25 successful Lysander pick-ups, more than any other pilot in the European theatre, and won three DFCs for this vital, top-secret work.

Read about the adventures of this extraordinary man in a new book published by the Museum.
