Progress with the new biography

It's called 'CAMEL PILOT SUPREME: CAPTAIN D.V. ARMSTRONG', and at last the jacket design's right! Details are here on the publisher's website: https://www.pen-and-sword.co.uk/Camel-Pilot-Supreme-Hardback/p/16477.

Unfortunately my health-warning still applies to the inaccurate synopsis on Amazon and all the other online retailers. They use what they're first given, and it takes heaven and earth to change it. <grrr!>

Still, a picture paints a thousand words - and I get a thrill every time I look at that cover illustration by the wonderful aviation artist Lynn Williams. You can see it enlarged on my 'Aviation' page. Lynn has contributed several of the 150+ illustrations in the book, four of them in full colour depicting a selection of Armstrong's airborne feats. Amazing.
