Too many obituaries this week...... Sir Patrick Moore has passed away at the age of 89.
To many, he was the greatest astronomer of his age, a media star, a highly talented concert pianist, and in latter years he was known for his Eurosceptic politics, which I happen to agree with.
But to me, it was his work in Bomber Command during WW2 that defined him. More than one of my family would have been flying on ops with gen that Sir Patrick had perfected. He was a great man, and as a former member of the Royal Air Force myself, I am proud to have shaken his hand!
