After ‘the incident near Stonehenge’ George was grounded and given an administrative job on board the aircraft carrier HMS Glorious. When the ship docked in Alexandria he met a beautiful girl, Stella, twelve years his junior. He took her on an aerobatic flight over Dekheila Airfield (shown above), made love to her under the pyramids, and then absconded. The RAF now banished him to an even more boring job in Iraq – for amusement they would have fancy dress parties with George dressed as the devil with horns. In the build up to war, George at last persuaded the top brass to give him the command of a squadron of Blenheims. At the Munich Crisis they were sent to Egypt but, after ‘peace in our time’ they were ordered back. George arrived back 10 days late, after pursuing his affair with Stella (… in a menage a trois).
July 2017 update. Further research has revealed that some of the above information is not quite correct. The true story is a lot more interesting … Because of the extra material I have uncovered, the book will not now be published until 2018. Bear with me, dear potential reader 🙂
