With the outbreak of the Korean War, the UN Security Council called on its members to act and 16 nations did, with Britain sending aircraft carriers such as HMS Truimph, from which piston engined Sea Fury fighters and Fairey Firefly fighter-bombers operated. This is the story of the British and Australian Fleet Ari Arm pilots and their missions over hoistile territory, missions carried out with distinction and honor.
