Publisher: Richard Stowers, 2010. FIRST EDITION. VERY SCARCE (Seems to be out of print) Softback in very good condition, no inscriptions, some scratches to covers, minor marks. 200 pages

A biography of one of New Zealands fighter aces. Born in hastings and brought up in Wellington. He boarded at Christ's College, Christchurch. This book follows his career and his flying exploits, right up until his tragic death. Liberally illustrated with B & W photographs, this book is a fitting tribute. In March, 1940, while on patrol with another aircraft, Flying officer Kain sighted seven enemy bombers about 5000 feet above him, and while giving chase well into Germany, he was attacked from behind by an enemy fighter. Showing the finest fighting spirit, this officer out-manoeuvred the enemy and although his own aircraft was badly damaged he succeeded in bringng the hostile aircraft down. Thick smoke and oil fumes had filled his cockpit and although unable to see his compass, he skillfully piloted his aircraft inside allied lines in spite of being choked and blinded by smoke.
