The book

Voice from the Stars,
A Pathfinder's Story

By Tom Scotland, DFC

This is a compassionate story of the making of a pilot and the crew who flew with him through 62 operations flying from Italy with a Pathfinder Squadron of the RAF. The book reveals the feelings engendered in these men during the violence and superaction into which they were thrust.

It contains a very personal story commencing when the writer grew up during the depression years in Western Australia. Air Force experience in Australia and with the RAF in England followed. During wartime flights he and his British crew experienced many near disasters including escape from a burning Halifax aircraft over Cleckheaton near Leeds.

318 pages of cartoons, maps,
and photographs

Line cartoons by one of the flyers add humour to a riveting book.

Running through the autobiography, a thread is detected of a man on a search. It is a search for the meaning of existence, the purpose of life and death and the Voice which brought him answers in the most unexpected times and places.
