Hello Kirsty,
I started this thread,way back in 2007, and I had no idea we would be posting on it,13 years later.
I had the greatest of pleasure to fly with your grandad George,and I can assure you he was the utmost gentleman .
Soft spoken and precise,and very kind,too.
Much mischief went on in the 70s and George was very good at turning a blind eye, when it was appropriate!

As with so many of my colleagues,I have just come to the abrupt end of a long career, but have no regrets.

616 Gliding School,RAF Henlow,and it’s ATC squadron,was the launchpad for me, back in 1972.

I have much to thank our instructors for...Grandad George,Doug,Peter,Alan,Ken,Roger et al...

Martin Germann.
