Rob Davis, who seems to be something of an expert on Bomber Command has read dad’s book and has commented on it very favourably… ‘I thought it was great and an excellent insight into his life’… which pleased me greatly. He sent me a list of other books in which information my dad had included was also in other books. Sometimes dad’s information was more extensive and in others their information was greater.
These books are worth mentioning here:

I feel such a sense of pride in dad’s work… and today, 22 Apr, would have been his birthday, too, so I’m feeling rather sad that he can’t be here to see his work in print.
