Snide re­marks were un­called for

Uxbridge Gazette - - OPINION -

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! No fur­ther com­ments.
