Description: The first-person story of Robert J. Middleton, an RCAF WWII No. 6 Group Bomber Command Navigator. It takes us from his childhood days in Toronto, through his service in the RCAF and to his life in his 90s. Told through his nine decades of memories of events, with over 300 personal photographs, artifacts, documents and maps. Many of these have not been presented in any other publications. For a generation, Canadians have faced the silence of their veteran relatives who refused to talk about the Second World War. But here, Bob Middleton, former RCAF Navigator, breaks that silence modestly, honestly, accurately and with an engaging sense of humour. He puts you in that right-hand seat because he was there. - Ted Barris, author of Dam Busters and The Great Escape. It is an honour and a privilege for me to comment on the excellent account of the wartime service and life of Flying Officer Robert J. Middleton, complied by Bob with his son Daniel R. Middleton. Bob is a member of a great Canadian generation that is passing far too quickly today, and who like many of his peers was asked to serve their country in time of need to help preserve the common values and way of life that we enjoy today. The “Profession of Arms” especially during a World War is a bloody business that exacts the ultimate price be paid by many of those who dutifully serve. I am thankful that Bob and Dan were able to compile and share with us this exquisite and detailed look inside the life of young Bomber Command Navigator, and the successful and rewarding life and career of Bob after the war years. Luck is 33 Eggs is a must read that I am sure all will enjoy. David G. Rohrer CD, Chairman and CEO Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum.
