My OC Admin at Watton mid 60s was a chap called Peter Moon. He had been involved with Sunderlands during the war, and received some sort of commendation for saving a moored aircraft when on storm watch. He became an admin wallah an by sheer grit and hard work and despite formal educational qualifications got commissioned and left as gp capt. Many years later when I was Secretary of a large S Coast Yacht Club, he called in to invite me to lunch at Barton on Sea Golf Club where he held some exalted position. He had seen my name in the Lymington Times. Lovely man, but I wished that I knew more of the Sunderland incident..
