Fishing to Flying


A remarkable personal account of life on fishing trawlers in the North of England during the Depression, when going to sea was tough and dangerous.

The writer, Allen Finch, later became a radio officer in the very early days of civil aviation, and there are fascinating anecdotes as political tensions rise in the lead up to World War 2.

Allen Finch was born in 1913, and now lives in Hertfordshire, England.
