It is indeed my Grandad,
Lt Cmdr "Jock" Murricane MBE :) Very proud.

From what I can tell it's mostly historical, about the planes and so on that they flew, and the various action they saw, but there's some fantastic pictures in there. It's odd to see at face value the similarities, and the huge differences as well...

Really looking forward to reading it properly (will probably do on monday/tuesday). Will post a bit more afterwards.

I'd love to hear what you make of it. I suppose alot of us are of the generation that our Grandads fought in the wars, but I for one know very little about what it was actually like, and what happened.

Mmm - part of the reason I bought it. What with Jo joining the Murricanes I thought I'd find out a bit more about them :)

Also planned is a trip to belfast to see my granny who won't be able to make it over to the wedding...
