The Last Navigator, Allen & Unwin, Sydney, 2020
Promoted as ‘From the Queensland bush to Bomber Command and Pathfinders … a true story of courage and survival against the odds’.
This is the powerful first-hand account of Gordon’s dangerous and brave war experiences as recalled for his son Paul. ‘My father told me that to survive you had to surrender all hope.’ That extraordinary formula followed by the men of Bomber Command allowed Gordon to not only come through the war, but to find a successful career with Qantas, finishing as its chief, and possibly last, navigator.
