  1. I am the son of a former RAF World War II fighter pilot who has just read your two articles Bomber Command and Birth of Swift Death. My mother was a plotter in Bomber Command, sending Lancs out to bomb Nazi Germany. My dad flew Spitfires, Hurricanes, and Typhoons, the latter with 257 Squadron. Both my parents were active in veterans’ organizations until their deaths.
    I have written a tribute to such pilots, based on my father’s experiences in Occupied France, and later in Stalag Luft III, from which the Great Escape took place. I am a former English teacher with 27 published short stories, essays and reviews in an on-line paper, ‘Story Quilt’, to my credit, as well as a published book.
    Would your editor be interested in possibly publishing this article? It is about 3000 words in length, and includes two photographs taken in the 1940s, one with my dad and his ‘Tiffie’ and the other of his downed Typhoon in Normandy.
