Others, such as his first encounter with rum, nearly kill his commanding officer. But when that colonel recommends Bandy for the Royal Flying Corps (largely because the average life expectancy for pilots was six weeks), he inadvertently does the young lieutenant a good turn by helping Bandy find his true genius – flying.Winner of the Leacock Medal for Humour, this original unrevised 1962 version of Donald Jack’s classic Three Cheers for Me is available again for the first time in fifty years.
