On the evening of 24 February 1944, the RAAF Lancaster J bomber for Template took off from the aerodrome, in Lincolnshire.On board, a crew of seven young Australian boys and five young Australians, two Scotsmen, whose mission was to bombard factories in Schweinfurt, Germany.But J for Template never reached his target.He was shot down in the night sky over France.This book is about the seven lives of the aircraft-which they were, what they did, which they loved, which they left behind.Some were dying that night, and others to survive, resisting the incredible ordeals and adventures of prisoners and war escapees that were far from over.The crew brilliantly recreated J for the final template of the mission, but more than that, by telling seven people of Mike Colman’s stories captured the achievements, loss and lasting legacy of the generation that fought in World War II.
