Mervyn Mason - Japanese air raids

Running time

I had an easy life as service life, just looking after aeroplanes. There were bombing raids, but we had our own trenches. They give you a bleeping sign that there was Japanese aeroplanes approaching and you go and dive into your little burrow in the ground and stick your head out and they might drop a few bombs on something they see. They might be able to damage an aeroplane sitting in the tarmac.
