This sort of thing is my bug bear as well Chris. A few aircrew ‘memoirs’ I have are just the ORBs with a couple of one liners. I mentioned it a few years ago on here but the Rodney Scrase memoir is my biggest disappointment as it was handled by Angus Mansfield who loves a cold hard generic stat over any sort of personal experience. Rodney was a great speaker and I was fascinated at his life talk I attended. You get absolutely nothing of his personality in the book.
