Standing Guard short story free on Amazon

Standing Guard, an aviation story by VH Folland, is available free on Amazon on the 30th and 31st January and 1st February.  When an old aircraft picks up a maritime distress signal, the aircrew request help, but they are an hour’s flight from the coast. With night approaching, they are the only aircraft on the scene and the ship’s crew are fading fast.

Standing Guard is a short story at 23 pages, and is one of the Day’s at Brooke’s Vale collection. The story collection covers incidents and mishaps at a small airstrip.

“Flying home from their display seems a perfect time for Jim to train his wife on radio procedures. An SOS on a non-aviation channel was the last thing he expected to hear. The laws of sea and air are clear: the person who receives a distress call is bound to assist.

Even if they are in a very old aircraft, over a very large ocean, looking for a very small boat.”

The story is available from all Amazon sites, and authorgraphed (electronically autographed)
copies can be obtained from the author’s website.
