A reprint of the very first Biggles story.
From the blurb;
"THE RESCUE FLIGHT is a story of the 1941 - 1918 war, when Biggles was still a Captain in the Royal Flying Corps. Nigel Fortymore, a young pilot fresh from school, is shot down over the enemy lines, but his brother, Peter, is convinced that he is still alive. Peter joins the Royal Flying Corps in a somewhat unorthodox manner and, assisted by a school friend, Rip, is instrumental in rescuing his brother from Germany.
As a result, a "Rescue Flight" is organised to provide a regular means of escape for shot-down officers, and has many successful adventures before being finally disbanded. This story is one of many in which an author with imagination has anticipated future events for the activities of the "Rescue Flight.", improbable as they may have sounded when the story was first written, were a direct foreshadowing of methods employed during the second world war."
Excellent pages with some edge-wear. Includes dust-jacket in poor condition.
