Comrades in Arms

I must have got some sweat in my eyes whilst watching this:

A 94-year-old World War Two glider pilot took his first helicopter flight to attend a comrade's funeral.

Ian Kerr-Bonner feared he would be unable to make the 560-mile round trip from his home in Pembrokeshire to pay his respects to old friend Des Page in Kent when he broke both hips.

He had been friends with the fellow glider pilot for more than 70 years.

Although, when I read the title I thought the thread was going to be about the Capt WE Johns book that combines the adventures of Biggles, Worrals and Gimlet.

I thought of the Sven Hassel book, but that was Comrades of War.
