Finally made it home after another 2 hour delay at the airport. Just want to say thank you to all for their assistance especially Maureen who put me right on timings otherwise I would have missed the RAF memorial. It was an honour for me to be able to lay a wreath at both locations although I did think I might fall over one of those tv crews at Suda Bay who were pushing everyone out of the way. The highlight for me was when I returned to the RAF Memorial to check out the name HESS as I could not find him on the CWG site or anywhere else for that matter and bumped into Ron Croxton and his two sons. What an Amazing tale he had to tell re Crete and his time in a lifeboat after the Laconia sinking. Then to discover he only lives 20 miles from me here in Lincolnshire. I have his address and will hopefully be able to visit with him and chat.
So once again many thanks to all for their help.
