he Life of Air marshall Sir Ivor Broom KCB,CBE,DSO,DFC and Two Bars,AFC
The remarkable story of a lad
from the Rhondda Valley who rose from
the rank of Sergeant Pilot to Air Marshal
receiving the DSO, three DFCs, an AFC
and other decorations along the way. He
completed three tours of operations over
enemy territory including thirty-one
extremely dangerous low level attacks on
enemy targets from the beleaguered island
This is not only the story of a skilful and courageous pilot
but also relates Sir Ivor’s varied and interesting post-war life. In 1955 he set a new speed record flying from Canada to England in a Canberra bomber, became Commandant of CFS which included the management of the Red Arrows and he commanded No.11 Group at the height of the Cold War.
Clean Sweep provides a fascinating glimpse of RAF life through some of its most eventful years.
