    I have a friend who's dad after the war was flying a desk in charge of personal of this squadron. He was a navigator and bomb dropper on Wellingtons during the war. He noticed there was an extra man in this squadron with no job title. He transferred him out. Alarms were ringing and my friends dad was summoned to the commander's office. Bader was in there giving everyone hell. " IS THIS THE MAN! Well comes to find out he transferred the leg mechanic of Bader. Name? he gives it. Hmmm. You related to xyz? Yes Bother. When we were in school, he wasn't worth anything either. Storms out. Commander, don't do that again. All sorted.

    Great joke... my Dad was a pilot in WWII and told me the same joke, with slight modification, as soon as I was old enough to know the difference between a Fokker and a F#&@er. About 50 years ago. Still brings a grin..:D:D
