Gary, this group of Liberator aficionados we are part of is not quite as large as the Manchester United fan base. Knowing that somehow adds to the satisfaction I feel in having enlightened a few more of our unique gang of curiosity-seekers with this book about the exploits of Bill and his squadronmates.
I'm thrilled that you're finding the book to be a great read -- gotta give this guy named Bill Kirkness a bit of credit, too! I can open the book to any page and read it again, with a sense of awe and gratitude – and sometimes relief that I never had to experience anything even remotely similar.
Thanks! Happy New Year, very soon. Here's a photo of Bill at a 159 Squadron reunion -- loving the chance to raise a glass with his old pals.
