    Steve,

    A bit more on Lance Gregory for your bio-file:

    The first two items are not mean't to lampoon Gregory, but to show the difficulties that war placed on relationships - puts a new twist on the term, "Smudger"!

    Gregory took to cab-driving post-war. He was a member of the Air Force Reserve, and was in the Special Duties Branch. F/O Lancelot Gregory was placed on the Retired List on 1 June, 1976 with the honorary rank of Acting Flight Lieutenant.

    Gregory was granted a BEM on 2 June, 1973, in recognition of service to youth.
