210mm x 210mm softback, 44 pages, 60 illustrations. The action-packed story of a great character – of ‘Straddle’ the Cocker Spaniel mascot of a Canadian Sunderland flying boat squadron in World War II. He had his own logbook which charted his operational flights – and his escapades. ‘Straddle’ raised hell at times, crossed paths with senior officers, was ‘Mentioned in Dogspatches’, commissioned as ‘Pilot Officer Straddle’, awarded medals and after the war went to live in Canada.
