This thread is for Episode 7 of the WONZ Show, featuring Alan Peart, WWII RNZAF Spitfire ace, who was one of the guest speakers at the 14th of May 2011 Wings Over New Zealand Forum Meet and Veterans Day here in Cambridge.
This is a recording made during the event, and is one of several from that day which will feature as WONZ Show episodes so those who could not make it on the day get to hear the various talks, and those who did can relive the day.

Thanks Ken. Alan is a fascinating man. If you have not yet read his book, "From North Africa To The Arakan", make a point of doing so as it is really excellent, as is Bryan Young's "The Beckoning Skies." Bryan was in the same squadron at Alan so the two books compliment each other but are different enough not to be repetitive. Both books are among my favourite autobiographies.
