Had the privilege of meeting him & listening to his speech at a Battle of Britain Dinner in 2013. You could have heard a pin drop during & there was a prolonged standing ovation at the end, a truly memorable occasion . He looked rather overawed during the applause, I felt he might have been thinking ‘how come I’m here being cheered to the rafters when so many others didn’t make it?’

I have to agree with the views on his book, a classic of the aviation genre and a remarkably modest account of his part in history.
