    I wish I had just phoned him out of the blue. Thatís how I got in touch with dadís last two surviving crewmen. I regret not phoning Murray Peden. For those who have not read his book, just go out and get it. You wonít be able to put it down. Uproariously funny one page, frightening the next and tragic on the next page. It is the finest book on the Bomber Command experience I have read.
