A Biography of Squadron-Commander F. J. Rutland, famous for his courage and feats of daring whilst serving in the R.N.A.S in WWI. His speciality was flying reconnaissance planes off from the turret tops of cruisers, before the development of Aircraft Carriers. However, the mysterious circumstances of his arrest and long period of detention without trial during WWII are strange and disquieting.
