We Remember

Of course we do, for it is too hard to forget.

  1. Remember especially your own great uncle, a test pilot who was killed aged 19/20 doing a second test run on the Spitfire in (I think) 1940. He’d done one test run and then, for reasons that no-one knows, but about which there are some theories, insisted on going up again and crashed to his death.

    His father refused to believe that he had died and, against all advice, insisted on his coffin being opened so that he could see for himself. I don’t think there was anything recognisable for him to identify.

    Just one of so many tragic deaths.
