I met Eric at his home which is just a mile from my home and he is a great story-teller. The picture in this article is one I took. I'm considering popping round with my video camera and doing an interview, would there be any interest in it though?

Let me know, cheers, MP.

Very interesting.

As a sidenote: Stalin acknowledged the British and US aid in a november 6th 1941 radio broadcast (acc. a 1966 documentary). Although I dont know how specific he was.

My closest encounter with aeronautical history was when I was about 4 years old, I use to go over to Fred Grissoms house and play with his dog cuz it was across the street from my grandma's.

As we all know, Fred Grissom is the brother of Gus Grissom who died on the launch pad.
