These socks look SO sweet and last for ages. Also purchased Mary Jane socks for my first daughter which are equally as cute.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It's fun for everyone! Really?? Not for me, but my two year old LOVES it. Bit rubbish that there are only four programmes on it, but at least we know how to make clown cake now!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Lighter Shade of Pale Blue - A Radar Operator's Memories of World War Two, 9 April 2008
Fantastic Read!

"Reg O'Neil has set out to record the life of an ordinary `Erk' in the `other ranks' of the RAF during World War Two. But there is nothing ordinary about Reg, or his remarkable wartime adventures. Badly burned in a horrific coach accident at RAF Little Rissington, that claimed 9 lives in 1941, he was patched up by world famous plastic surgeon Dr Archibald McIndoe.

Returning to duty Reg `remustered' as a Radar Operator. He trained at Cranwell on the earliest versions of the then top-secret equipment , and worked, gazing into the cathode ray tube to track the movements of enemy aircraft and shipping at various locations in the UK before being posted overseas to more sunny climes.

He went to Malta in 1943 with Type 16 Radar unit 160004 AMES, where amongst other things he witnessed the surrender of the Italian fleet. In 1944, after a brief trip home to the UK, he rejoined 16004 in Corsica and processed into Italy in the wake of the invasion. Reg finally returned to England in 1945 - only to discover that his home had been destroyed by a `doodlebug'!

A truly unusual wartime tale, told with an eye for interesting detail and a great sense of humour".
