Autobiography of a Mosquito and Wellington navigator
First hand description of early use of OBOE target marking system
Graphic personal account of 2 tours of operations
Albert Smith's first tour of 38 operations as a Wellington navigator over Germany and North Africa was followed by another with Pathfinder Mosquitoes. As one of only two infant Oboe squadrons, Smith was soon in the air illuminating bombing targets and relives triumphs and disappointments and all the fears entailed in being the first aircraft over a heavily defended target.
"Suddenly there is a jolt, and I glance sharply to the left. Out of the window beyond
Johnny's head I see, for an instant, the grotesque black belly of an aircraft sliding by. Nothing happens for a moment, the drone persists the course holds. Then with a sickening lurch, the plane cartwheels through the sky."
