A true hero
« on: November 14, 2014, 06:04:22 pm »

  Captain Eric "Winkle" Brown RN was the guest on Desert Island Discs this morning. Should be repeated on Sunday or available on Iplayer.
I eat my peas with honey,
I've done it all my life;
It makes the peas taste funny,
But it keeps 'em on the knife.

Heard it on my way to work. Great bit of radio. From the horrors of Belsen to looping the Forth Bridge (twice).

A remarkable life.
