Happy Birthday Captain W.E. Johns!

Recommended Posts

"Captain" (Actually, Flying Officer) William Earl Johns, born 5 February 1893.


I still have a copy of "Biggles - Pioneer Air Fighter" which I got as a present for my 8th birthday sitting on my bookshelf.


I still read it from time to time as well - the descriptions of WW1 flying and combat tactics are well worthwhile.


And on a recent visit to the Imperial war Museum in London, I picked up a reissue of "Biggles Defends the Desert."






Great stuff!


Curse you, von Stalhein!

I read Biggles as a boy and read it now to my boys.
