No.457 (RAAF) Squadron was one of the two Australian fighter units to be formed in England. It was ittle known while based in the UK as it was overshadowed by No.452 squadron, its sister unit. However it had its revenge over Darwin when it became part of the legendary "Churchill Wing", led by the famous Australian ace Clive " Killer " Caldwell, and ran up a satisfactory score.
The story of this unit is narrated in 92 pages with appendices comprising the claim list, operational and accidental losses. The pilots' roster gives the war service of all the 194 pilots (175 Australians, 9 British, 5 Canadians, 4 New Zealanders and 1 Newfoundlander) who had been posted or attached to the unit between 1941 and 1945. Eight colour profiles and more than 80 photographs illustrate the booklet, the first ever published on this Australian unit.
