In the book Peter Rees chronicles the powerful and at times tragic story of Len Waters, Australia’s only WW2 aboriginal fighter pilot. The legend of Len Waters began in 1944 when he joined the RAAF training as a mechanic then pilot.

Based with the 78th squadron in New Guinea and Borneo he went on to fly 54 combat sorties many of them in his Kittyhawk coincidentally nick named “Black Magic” by its previous pilot.

After the war he settled in St George and married Gladys Saunders, raising a family of six. He believed he could “live on both sides of the fence” and be part of Australia’s emerging airline industry. He just wanted to fly but instead became the missing man in Australia’s wartime flying history.

Enjoy the book with a glass of Black Magic vintage fortified and chocolate truffles or fruitcake.!
