{detailed description}The author traces the story of the Air Training Corps from its tenuous beginnings after the 1914-18 war, when the idea of a youth organisation with an aeronautical flavour formed in the minds of two young ex-servicemen, to its present position as the main source of recruits for the Royal Air Force.
The story unfolds via the formation of the Air League's Air Defence Cadet Corps, through the difficult days of World War 2 — during which the Air Training Corps was formed — to the present day.
Stories of achievements by cadets and ex-cadets, the dedicated work of civilians and officers, as well as examples of the more mundane work at squadron level, combine to reveal why the Air Training Corps was formed, how it tackled the task it was set, and why it is now perhaps one of the best organisations to which any air-minded young man can belong.
The opportunities it presents and the rewards it can offer to any who join its ranks, as well as the not inconsiderable contribution it has made to the Nation's history, are all covered to a greater or lesser degree, between the covers of this book.
