Mr. B was reading about his life and his early days had a terrible sadness. Apparently his father was a POW in Japan. After he was liberated he was flying home when the plane crashed. Clive James was only 6 and when his mother got the News, she collapsed (ill, not dead) in front of him. Terrible experience for a 6-year-old

"Never in the field of human conflict was so much owed by so many to so few."

I'm sure most BCG readers will be familiar with the above words but it may be that not all readers are aware that a few of those few are still with us almost 80 years on.

Until recently, there were four Battle of Britain pilots remaining amongst us.

Sadly, however, Flight Lieutenant Maurice Mounsdon died last Friday at the age of 101.

RIP.

I just saw that Kenny Lynch has died. A great singer songwriter and comedy actor.
