He's the genuine article! He's just published a book about his experiences and approached us, (being his local bookshop) for support.
Hey, He's got it!

The more I read the more I'm in awe of having this guy as a neighbour.

He is obviously very old, wrinkly etc.. but his bravery really demands respect.

He is the pilot of one of the most famous Beaufighter photos ever - a rocket lauch over a Nazi stronghold.

I would give a link here to that, (but I'm simple..) Please Google Stevens/Beaufighter.!

It's strange to meet this guy, to think of him then and now...

Tangible.
