About the Author

Oliver Clutton-Brock, born in London three weeks before the end of the Second World War, spent the first 17 years of his life in Lincoln, surrounded by many of Bomber Command’s now historic airfields. Early aviation memories are of four-engined aircraft always flying overhead, searchlights, and a trip in a DH Rapide from RAF Scampton on Battle of Britain Day sometime in the fifties.

Educated at Windermere (swimming in the cold lake is a painful memory!) and then at Shrewsbury School, where his studies took second place to sport, he left in 1963 and had a variety of jobs before joining the Civil Service in London in 1969. He took early retirement – they made him an offer he couldn’t refuse – in January 1997.
