There are 3 stories in one : how Townsend came to be a flyer and his war achievements, his time with the Royals and how he became Princess Margaret's lover, after the Palace when he was quietly (initially) shuffled out as unfit for Margaret's hand and his life thereafter.
Thank you. The book was in fine condition.
' 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)
