Hmm. Since the opening of this thread I actually bought the book First Light on "audible" via amazon.
I'm not through yet.
However I have re listened to the 65 Sqdn second sortie section twice now. It's as far as I have got.
It is such a blisteringly raw account of fear, despair, conviction and sheer bloody, pig headed courage.
I was working, out under blue skies, in the Perthshire hills on Friday, when I caught news of his interment, via PPRuNe, online, and in my mind I went through the narration once again.
It takes a lot for me to well up...
RIP and thank you.
