' Suddenly Chamberlain's voice, heavy with disaster, broke the silence: 'It is a sad day for all of us. All the aims I have tried so hard to attain, all the principles in which I believed. . . Have come to nought. I hope to live long enough to see the day when, with the end of Hitlerism, a free Europe will be born.'
The tension suddenly broke. The fatal step had been taken; we were at war. Caesar was the first to rejoice. 'Wizard', he kept repeating and, turning to John Simpson, he laughed: 'Don't worry, John, you'll be one of the first to be killed!'
John, like me, would survive, but not Caesar, nor Woods-Scawen, nor Wilkinson in A flight, nor Tiger Folkes, Eddy Edmonds, Pat Christie or Joe Sullivan in B flight. By the time another year was out, they would all be dead. With one chance in five of survival -- not counting the burnt and the wounded -- only a handful of us would come through. ' (p. 102)
