I have the book and I'll be reading it again this evening.
As with Henry Allingham last week, I'll be breaking out some of my best whisky to sip whilst I'm doing it.
Hmmm... what to choose. A fine Islay Malt I think. Old Glenn.
Good on you Harry, the last of your kind.Cheers.
I had the pure honour of meeting the great man, hope they ,respect his wishes and don't have a state funeral for him, I know many glasses will be raised in the pubs of Bath tonight, and partially the ( then village) suburb of Combe Down were the great man was born.
I finished reading Henry Allinghams book at around 2am this morning and promptly wiped some grit from my eye (must have a word with the missus about her dusting skills)
Got up this morning and went to put the book besides Harry's bio but couldn't find it. Then remembered it was on loan. Strange that he crossed my mind 2hrs before I heard the sad news
I feel a trip to the cenotaph coming on. Mebbe I'll send the wife up before me to make sure there's no dust
