I was honoured to write a poem to be used by the Royal Air Force and Breitling to mark the 100th anniversary year of the Royal Air Force.
No worries. Still no prospect of a return to work, so it gives me a little project each day. I generally stay a day or two ahead.Thanks again Steve for all your work.
Yes, the Germans were feeling the strain.Another good write up. At this point in the battle German fighter morale must have been at a very low ebb. The strain on the Jabos in particular must have been extreme knowing they were achieving very little in return for the risks involved. At least the Allies were defending home soil so could use that as motivation, even if they were exhausted.
