We met this gentleman at Duxford last Wednesday, one of the Yoxford Boys from RAF Leiston who used to fly P51 Old Crow, his name Bud Anderson, just Google that name for a slice of history ;-)

I was hoping to head up to Thorpe ABbotts at the weekend but had to work. Hope it was a good meeting and I will do my best to be at the Rougham one.
