With reference to your Road Impressions “although not possessed of any pronounced oriental enthusiasms” etc., perhaps you would be kind enough to enlarge on this. Surely it cannot be a long memory bothering you, otherwise why the love of German vehicles? I remember the cartoon years back depicting you looking through spectacles the lenses of which were clouded by the badges of the two best known German car manufacturers.
Personally I would not buy foreign let alone German or Japanese.
Secondly, the letter from Air Commodore Banks: the paragraph “Summing up: and of course the pilots saved our necks . . .” Surely this should be crews or if he insists, pilots and crews? I distinctly remember other people climbing into a Lancaster with me some 30 odd years ago.
