I suspect my neighbour - he claims to have been a copper, a lorry-driver, a coach-driver and an airline pilot (he was captaining the last trans-atlantic flight out of US airspace before it was closed due to 9/11). The driving bit I can swallow - there's a photo of him by a coach - that's about it. All other supporting evidence supposedly lost in a burglary. What's odd is that he hasn't ever claimed any any form of military service. If the police and the professional pilots organisations had boards like this one, I feel I could make some progress. Sorry for a non-military incursion into your territory but I was in the Air Cadets and my dad did his National Service in the Signals in Egypt if that helps...(well he says he did...).Keep up the good work!
