    Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
    Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
    Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
    Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
    We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
    But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

    I remember Henry visiting us at Coford Aerospace Museum a few years back. Myself and others got a reality check whilst showing him a Napier Sabre engine that was being restored there. Henry was told that the type was obsolete for over 45 years; he quickly replied."I was over 55 when it went into service, and i'm not obsolete yet!!" Boy, that got our attention.....

    Farewell Henry, finally 'Gone west' to a better place.

    We shall stick it out to the end, but we are getting weaker of course, and the end cannot be far.
    It seems a pity, but I do not think I can write more. R. SCOTT.
    Last Entry - For God's sake look after our people.'
