Since my Father died 10 days ago I have been able to read his flight log book

He had talked about planes that he flew during the war but since he died I have read his flight Log Book and found that he had Piloted three planes I didn't know he had flown

I knew he'd flown Tiger Moths, Spitfire 1 & 5, Hurricanes and a Harvard II, Master II . But I see he had also Piloted Baltimores an Anson, and a Wellington.

That's made me smile today
