Omega, Fergie and all of us who flew Albert will never forget them. A glass has been lifted in their memory and as usual it became every dusty suddenly. Per Ardua, boys.

Yet another year, I still remember the shock. Blue Skies, boys. You are not forgotten. Per Ardua.

It was clearly a struggle for the commentator to maintain composure, for understandable reasons

Yet another year, my diary reminds me. I am not embarrassed to shed a tear. They were good friends, and will not be forgotten. Cold ones will be hoisted, both here and in their crewroom. Per Ardua, boys, until we meet again.

Alison Conway - I too am not embarrassed to shed a tear. My village church has a 'thing' where for a small donation to the 'leccy, people can light the spire in memory of loved ones etc. Every year since we moved in, the week that has 30 Jan in it has always been in tribute to Steady and the rest of the crew of 179.
