Best Biography Award

Great news! I've just heard from the USA-based League of WW1 Aviation Historians that I have won the 2019 Thornton B. Hooper Award for Excellence in Aviation History in the Best Biography class. I wish I could say they’ve given this award to my book Camel Pilot Supreme: Captain DV Armstrong DFC, but actually it’s for a biographical piece about Captain Armstrong I contributed to their magazine 'Over the Front' published last Autumn. It comes hot on the heels of a really heartwarming book review by fellow aviation historian Alex Henshaw, who knows a thing or two about the air history of the Great War. I'll try to take a scan and post Alex's review on my DV Armstrong page. Just the pick-me-up needed on this wet and windy weekend.
