He has shot down a Japanese Zero fighter and has been shot down in his turn, but he still remains the most serene 24-ycar-old veteran you ever saw. Johnny started as a bomber pilot and went through the Japs' first raid on Darwin. He later transferred . to pursuit aviation, where he has had one series of adventures after another.
