Snide remarks were uncalled for
I WOULD respond to the snide unwarranted jibe expressed by Mr W. Pierce (Gazette 4.1.2017).
I will be very brief as to his assumption that I was engaged on a “joyride” when in fact I was under instruction and my grey matter recollects my pilot was RAF and was “resting” as it was termed, having completed a tour.
May I also add that two older friends and members of my Cadet Sqd were not as fortunate as I was later, one is buried in Germany the other only the good Lord knows, but no doubt Mr Pierce with all respect these were “pleasure“flights in your book!
