96-year-old Bomber Command survivor continues to tell his story

I was impressed to learn today that Laurie Woods AM DFC LdH is still going strong, continuing to promote the four books he wrote about his experiences as a bomb aimer with 460SQN in RAF Bomber Command.

The link to the video features a short interview with Laurie, conducted by his publishers Boolarong Press. They have also released his four books as a boxed set.

The Hell Series by Laurie Woods

Available now for A$99.99 at this LINK

The box set includes:

  • Back From Hell
  • From Hell and Back
  • Halfway to Hell
  • Into the Mouth of Hell

It was for his heroic actions on his last mission that Laurie was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross.

Having met Laurie, I can attest to his skill as a storyteller. It is a magnificent achievement for Laurie to have written these books in his later years and an even more magnificent achievement that he is still able to promote them to the reading public at local bookstores.

For South East Queensland locals, you can find the dates for Laurie’s book signings at various Brisbane shopping centres by going to the Boolarong Press website and checking out the EVENTS list. https://www.boolarongpress.com.au

His book signings run right up to Christmas Eve and he’s back again on Boxing Day. That really requires some stamina.
