4.0 out of 5 stars Forgotten hero, 26 Oct. 2015

Fascinating account of a phenomenal WW2 pilot whose name seems barely known outside flying circles. Recommended to anyone with an interest in the era.

4.0 out of 5 stars File under brain snack, 16 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stuck In Love (Amazon Video)
Surprisingly enjoyable movie. I was ready to switch off in the first few minutes but persevere. The central performances are strong with a believable family dynamic - whilst not very representative - shows a side of break ups worth exploring; namely the effect on teenage children, albeit privileged ones. The script is sharp and the pace clips along without becoming maudlin. Neither brain candy nor worthy - it's definitely one for a night in with a glass of wine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bourne Heaven, 30 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you love your Bourne Identity franchise then banish your girlfriend/missus, buy a large bag of popcorn, draw the curtains and settle in for the day with the surround sound turned up to 11. This is great action movie indulgence in HD and dolby digital sound capturing every shell-case and tyre squeal. Then watch it all over again.

Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb, 30 Aug. 2013

This review is from: First Light (Paperback)
An absorbing and sobering first hand account by a Spitfire pilot, from the day he signed up as a fresh-faced teenager to the exhausted, burnt out and war weary veteran of a few years later. Wellum isn't afraid to refelct on how it affected him psychologically and the gut-wrenching fear of aerial combat in WW2. Utterly compelling.

This was and still is my iPhone case - it's really tough, fits really well and looks way more expensive than it is. At thsi price you can't really go wrong.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the most intuitive software..., 30 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sage Instant Accounts V16 (CD-ROM)
If you're not an accountant or new to managing your business finances you'll struggle to use this software without some instruction. My accountant helped me get to grips with the basic book-keeping and vat but I have to say the majority of the features are infuriatingly difficult to use. If you're used to Mac software like me (and I'm no technophobe) you'll find this irriating and counter-intuitive - it's also PC only which is another reason to find it annoying. I suspect there are much better packages out there but then again I'm speaking as a relative newbie - professionals may disagree.

These are very well-priced and do the job. I've already lost too many far higher priced stylus pens and these are excellent replacements.


Wing Leader: Top-scoring Allied Fighter Pilot of World War Two (Fighter pilots)
Wing Leader: Top-scoring Allied Fighter Pilot of World War Two (Fighter pilots)
by J. E. Johnson
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating first hand account, 30 Aug. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I've read a number of WW2 Fighter pilot memoirs and this doesn't disappoint. Johnson's style is no-nonsense - there's little florid description here or self analysis - rather it feels like it's been taken from flight journals and diaries (unsurprisingly) and then given some polish and charm. As the top-scoring Allied pilot in WW2 he's modest without being afraid to admit his desire to achieve the record. From everything I've read, shooting down a plane was an incredibly difficult thing to do just once - to manage 34 and survive more or less unscathed is utterly incredible. There are plenty of anecdotes and close shaves and yet doesn't pull punches when it comes to describing the horror of war.

It's also important to remind yourself how incredibly young these men were - Johnson finishes the war aged just 30 but as a highly decorated Group Captain with responsibility for numerous men. It's a degree of maturity and character hard to imagine now. I devoured this book and I suspect anyone with a fascination for the era will enjoy it as much as I did.

5.0 out of 5 stars Saved my bike!, 17 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I used this lock in conjunction with a Kryptonite Kryptoflex cable lock. The cable was cut in two like it was string by a thief but this lock meant my bike went nowhere. For that reason I really rate it. Just make sure you get a chunkier cable lock than I did.

2.0 out of 5 stars Deters casual theft but that's it, 17 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This was put to the test when my bike was nearly stolen. Unfortunately it was the Mini Evolution Mini LS lock that saved the bike not this as it was neatly cut in two. It's a backup to deter the casual thief or to make life a bit more difficult but don't rely on it.
