About Raw Courage: The Extraordinary and Tragic Story of Four RAF Brothers in Arms:

This is the captivating story of the four Raw brothers, all of whom served with the Royal Air Force. The eldest three flew during WW2 and all three died. The youngest, not old enough to see wartime flying, flew night-fighters in the post-war years, ending up flying Spitfires with the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. The eldest brother, John, was killed in a flying accident just as he was starting a job as a flying instructor, in 1941. Peter was a fighter pilot, flying Typhoons with 609 Squadron, winning the DFC. Sadly he was killed in action with 183 Squadron in 1944. Tony flew Hampden and Lancaster bombers, received the DFC and AFC, but was also killed in action in 1944. Their father had been a naval officer, serving mainly in destroyers in WW1, winning the DSC.
