This morning I finished reading the account (autobiographical) of Airey Neave's war time service, particularly his escape from Colditz and "Home Run" to the UK - They Have Their Exits. I had never heard of Neave before my time at ICSC(L) and didn't hear of him on the course, rather as a local sports field was named after him. I did a bit of Google/Wiki searching and was astonished that such a distinguished Gunner had passed under my radar - yes, he was assassinated when I was 2 years old, but I would have thought to have heard of him, at least. DSO, OBE, MC, Lawyer, Politician, requested to assist at the Nuremburg Trials, MI9...quite a list of achievements. The more I read and in accounts of him, perhaps that I had not heard of him was not unusual. I can recommend the book and intend on reading his other works, of his time with MI9, aiding other escapees and assisting the resistance and to also read his autobiography. I was disgusted that a man who fought for the freedom of others, in wartime service and after in politics and law, someone who had secured his own, by no small measure, was killed by cowards. As I finished the book, I was raging that such an injustice could happen. Also saddened that one who seems to have been so influential is not around now - who knows how British politics and events may have played out.
