A YANK IN THE R. A.F By HARLAN THOMAS
TIM BAKER was young and cocky. He thought the world was his oyster, and he believed in money, Tim Baker, and loving (and leaving) women.
The first time Tim got to London, after ferrying a bomber across, he met Carol, a girl he had ditched in Dallas a year before. When she indicated firmly that she thought he was a heel, it hurt his pride. No woman could go back on him. So he joined the R. A. F. to prove it to her.
The R. A. F. and Carol proved more than Tim had bargained for. He had never thought of teamwork before, or working for an un¬selfish cause. When they made him a bom¬bardier instead of a pilot, he took it badly. And when he discovered that his superior, Wing Commander Morley was interested in Carol to the extent of marriage, his cocki¬ness took a jolt.
But Tim remained the brash young American until the night his squadron bombed a strategic enemy bridge. That night a fellow pilot deliberately took his plane into the ack-ack fire so that Morley and Baker and their gunner could escape. Even so, they cracked up in Holland. When they were captured by a detail of Jerries, the gunner jumped the German officer and got killed, so that Morley and Baker could escape. By a miracle, they got back to England. And suddenly Tim Baker knew that there were more important things in the world than Tim Baker. He became a true soldier. After Dunkerque, even Carol decided that he was a real man.
