The sight and sound of 16 spitfires flying together. AMAZING! They certainly don't make 'em like this anymore

Dad was a great Home Decorator .... always papering one room or another. We were all banned from the room he was working in but we knew when the last of the paper was going up 'cos he ALWAYS sang this as he finished the job. It always signalled the "All Clear" .... When she heard it Mum always put the kettle on and had a little weep.
