I wonder if he told or wrote more about his adventures. What type of aircraft was he flying how did he get shot down, combat or flak. Many young folk joined up for the ‘ grand adventure’ so had tales to tell, many will remain forever young. RIP those that gave all.
The word ‘hero’ is bandied about a lot these days, like the rag head lines “ Hero fireman saves cat up tree” !
Equate that with some of the extraordinary things people did in wartime..no contest.
