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.

I'm going to extend the deadline for Cliff to step in.

Folks, this could be a set up .................... Dear John L. ............... when you say British, do you mean British built or flown by the British ( so it could be American built )???????
I thank you in advance.
