Wouldn't consider France as being a Commonwealth nation!

Good rename - last time I checked Broaddus, Texas was never part of the Commonwealth..

Re: WW2 Commonwealth aces

...you refer to Mr Wade, it's understood ;-)

Three Einstein sayings to add to yours:
- "Two things are unlimited - the universe and human stupidity, but I'm not sure about the universe."
- "You should make all matters as easy as possible, but not easier than that !"
- "I don't know why noone understands me and everyone likes me."

Re: WW2 Commonwealth aces

Good morning Gentlemen,

I just finished working through Brian Cull's wonderful book "Screwball Beurling"
https://www.amazon.com/Screwball-Beu...8798233&sr=8-1
I read 5 Brian Cull books so far and each was really excellent but this one is even better than the others: a meticulous study about this fascinating and complicated character and thrilling descriptions of the dogfights over Malta.

Thumbs up !

Michael
