What was it about flying officer Robin Lawrence that put the fear of death into anyone who had to fly alongside him?
Just this – he was the worst day-dreamer in Britain. He acted so many parts of famous heroes that he’d no brain left to watch what he was doing – and this while flying a Spitfire at nearly 400 m.p.h.!
