Maurice 'Moggy' Mayne was a cricket-loving air gunner in the Second World War, with a pretty girlfriend back home in rural England. His turret was in a Bristol Beaufort - and his pilot had to fly with almost suicidal bravery at giant German warships before releasing his torpedo. No wonder 'Moggy's' first pilot cracked up and his second liked to drink. When he was shot down, Moggy miraculously survived - unlike his best friend Stan. However, 'Moggy' was sent to Stalag Luft VIII-B, an infamous German POW camp near the Polish border.
