Flying Fast and Low: The Story of Three Extraordinary Brothers

This book charts the lives and service careers of the three Muller-Rowland brothers who gave their lives for their country. Between two of them they earned a DSO, two DFCs and two Bars, and a King’s Commendation for Valuable Services in the Air. All three brothers flew low-level operations in three different theatres during the Second World War. Eric and Stanley did not survive the War, Stanley’s twin went on to become a test pilot in 1948, still the early days of jet aircraft. The risks were enormous, and he realised that. Sadly, this was to cost him his life.

 

“They were three boys with a passion for flying that seems to have known no bounds, a passion that they presumably shared with many of ‘the few’. It has been said of them that into their short lives they packed more than many who live to old age.”

In addition to his highly detailed research into the brothers’ careers David also draws upon the family’s recollections of the boys.
