Ways To Raise Funding / Michael T's 5.58K
« on: March 05, 2017, 11:28:05 PM »
Surprised that this hasn't got a higher profile but I'd love to think that when I get to sixty I might be able to walk this (let alone RUN it) for 558.  Good on you Michael!

Aviation Waffle / First Light

Cried my eyes out & thanked my lucky stars that I never had to do this (I'd have been a three-weeker at best at 18 - these days & with all my 'experience' of the world then possibly six if the Gods were kind to me...)

Six weeks for crying out loud - here's your Spitfire & here's your (temporary) bed.

Such an appalling waste (and it obviously wasn't just Spitfire pilots back then - all forces were under massive pressure.  Worse, it's still going on today).

Mr Wellum & his like need not worry - they will never be forgotten.

In 2150, when teachers are carrying out history lessons then he (and his kind) will be part of that.
