Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

YORKSHIRE AIR MUSEUM - IWM AWARD

Date: 21st March 2012

YORKSHIRE AIR MUSEUM – IWM AWARD

The Imperial War Museum held their London Film Awards on Wednesday and guess what – the Yorkshire Air Museum walked off with the first prize. As a Vice President of the Museum I feel able to share in their pride.

The entry in ‘Conflict Related Documentaries’ was ‘De Lourds Souvenirs’ – Heavy Memories and a play on words because the French bomber crews were called ‘Groupes Lourds’. The documentary was a joint production between the Museum and Geneviève Monneris who, I’m told, went proudly back to France with the very large Rose Bowl as the prize.

Couldn't get a photo of the whole Halifax Bomber at the York Museum but you can see the iconic Cross of Lorraine
