William Avery Bishop - best known as Billy - has been hailed as the British Empire's highest-scoring World War I fighter ace. Officially credited with victory in seventy-two air battles, the Canadian-born pilot was honoured in a special ceremony by King George V, who presented Bishop with the Victoria Cross, Distinguished Service Order and Military Cross at the same time. Bishop also became an early recipient of the Distinguished Flying Cross. Making 'lone wolf' attacks on German aircraft, the daring young flyer pursued targets over enemy lines without having to be responsible for less experienced men in a patrol. Bishop's approach to aerial combat was extremely dangerous, however, making him more vulnerable to his adversaries. And, with sparse independent corroboration of his air fighting claims, Bishop's tactic left him open to suspicions about the veracity of his combat reports. A key point of this book is Peter Kilduff's careful review of the ace's existing combat reports and private correspondence, as well as accounts by friends and foes. Another side of Billy Bishop is revealed in many letters to his fiancee (later wife) relating death-defying experiences while sharing tender inner thoughts. Drawing on some five decades of extensive, even-handed and thorough research into World War I aviation history, Kilduff examines a wealth of German sources for this in-depth study of the ace's aerial exploits. Drawing on all his experience, the author sheds new light on Bishop's air missions and combats, which so far are steeped in controversy. Such methodology provides as complete an account as possible. Billy Bishop VC - Lone Wolf Hunter also serves as a valuable reference work, containing over seventy illustrations relating to Bishop and his adversaries, many previously unpublished.

Preschool children are fascinated to see the real life tractors and machines in this 40 minute film introduced by their favourite farm cartoon, Tractor Ted.



Our top selling title packed full of the things we like best - Tractors! First up is a visit to a New Holland factory to see how a big blue multi-horsepowered tractor is made using lots of technical machinery. A big transporter takes it off to the agricultural merchants while Tractor Ted's friend, Les shows us his shiny new tractor. Poor Les, his day doesn't end well when he finds a water leak and ends up getting very wet! Children can see tractors at work doing all sorts of jobs like lifting, pushing, pulling and one or two extremely smelly jobs that always make kids giggle!



Tractor Ted has lots of interaction with the children as he pops up on screen to narrate the real life action. He encourages them to listen, count, read and sing to the film and they pick up lots of great knowledge while loving it.
