Friends 4

Allan’s first experience of getting into a dinghy was when he ditched a single engine aircraft into Scapa Flow in an 80 Knot gale, having hit, and cut a barrage balloon cable with the propeller. Although all the balloons were supposed to be down the RAF omitted to say that there were still four up tied to buoys. (Editor’s note – the aircraft was trying to land on a carrier at the time – what else! Cathy and Allen were also to meet at Scapa.)
