It's kinda corny, but the ending was good.

I just listened to that last week after doing a search on some of his aircraft used in Malta. I found it interesting for a few reasons:

1. Most of his replies sound rehearsed as though he wrote his statements out ahead of time and he's reading them off a sheet of paper, probably for the benefit of all the yokels gathered around their bakelite radios at home.

2. The voice definitely does not match the man. He sounds like what the Brits would refer to as a 'Prat'. You'd figure him to be the type to hold his teacup with pinkie extended, he doesn't sound like an aggressive, calculating sharp-shooter at all.

3. Did people really talk that slowly in the forties or is it part of my first point above?

Still, an interesting interview.
