Thanks for that John, just like to add that the pilot interviewed at the end of the film clip "On The Chin" Len Tonkin, was a Cornish boy, who lived in a village a couple of miles from me, who emigrated to Oz. I have a photo, given to me by his son, of him leaving the a/c after getting back from Cologne.
There is no paralell in warfare, to such courage and determination in the face of danger, over so long a period. Such devotion, should never be forgotten.
