Shoreham Airshow 2007
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.

Jan's Blog

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.

Dear All

I've been very remiss for a long time now and haven't been writing Blogs like I used to do mainly because when I write I write essays and they are time consuming.  I've been favouring Twitter where I am limited to a certain amount of characters so have to be thrifty.  Also I get so worked up about certain subjects like the Chinese Bushmeat Markets - where this current Pandemic originated - that I don't know that I could trust myself not to give full vent to my feelings.

On Twitter - which I attend to daily, I post photos, comments, retweet items of interest, and share with a large community.  I've built up my followers from nothing to over 3,300 (not a lot by some standards but I've nothing current on TV which would increase the followship - if there is such a word)

Now that we are all 'incarcerated' and there's not much else to do, I can no longer use the excuse of not having time.  Although I've set myself two fairly heafty tasks - getting my autobiography up to date and possibly publishing it on line.  And I've always wanted to write the story of my Search for René Mouchotte which was made into a short BBC Documentary. He was a Free French WW2 Pilot whose name I sponsored on the Battle of Britain Memorial Wall - and then a 6 year search commenced.  The documentary was only 15 minutes - I could have filled an hour and so much detail was omitted - so I really do have enough material for a book - it's just collating all the information which is now currently covering my dining table - still as we cannot entertain it's being put to good use

The Documentary 'Searching for René' can be found on - if you are interested.

And if you want to follow my doings - not so many of late - on Twitter it's @Jan_Leeming - If you haven't got a Twitter account it is easy to set one up.

Stay safe and stay indoors

God Bless

Jan xx
