Clem arrived as a first tourist when I was on 30 - not sure if it was just before or after we moved from Fairford to Lyneham. We always got on well, despite my contempt for the 'Green Shield Stamp' Flt Lt situation i.e I as a second tour Fg Off having to screen a first tour Flt Lt! Whenever I meet Clem he always refers to me as the 'angry young man'.
Having spent Dec 31st 2015 at my old mate Angus M's in Little Somerford we called in to see Clem the following morning on our way to collect our dog from friends at Broad Hinton. We hope to do the same this coming New Year. Clem and I both made the ultimate sacrifice for proud navs - donating sons to the RAF to become pilots!

By the way we are still in contact with the late late GB's good lady.
