He helped me get up into the IL-2 saddle on a few occasions.
Starting up IL-2 again just this weekend after a long time out is kind of coincidentally special.

It seems but days since he died, he and so many others over the years who helped make this place what it is, so sad, so young.

I hope his wife, family and friends are now managing to cope a little better with his loss and have carried on with him in their dearest memories.

Take care and be safe.

Wishing you all the very best, Pete.
