Interesting Facts

  • "Pilot Officer Heather was killed by the same explosion which wounded Flight Sergeant Geoffrey Keen my father and probably saved his life as a result, I therefore owe Rod (as my father knew him) a very great debt of gratitude. May they both now rest in peace." - Written by Martin Keen, son of Flight Sergeant Geoffrey Keen.
