Tom Morrison, a young Scot of working-class origin, becomes a gifted jazz musician. His love of language lands him a job as a cub reporter.

At the beginning of the Second World War, he enlists in the RAF and is deemed to have the qualifications to be a navigator.

During training in Canada, he became engaged to a local girl after a whirlwind romance before his recall to the UK, to participate in bombing raids on Germany. After 29 missions, his plane was shot down over the Channel Islands and he spent over a year under cover, in enemy-occupied territory. He was reported missing, presumed dead.

On being rescued, he returned to England, but the report of his death had dramatically changed his future. He had lost contact with his fiancée and a medical examination found him no longer fit to resume flying duties. He was transferred to the RAF Dance Orchestra until the end of the war.

This is a tale of a young man who rose from humble origins to mingle with the greats, while remaining true to his roots.
