OK, but not a patch on First Light by Geoffrey Wellum
on 1 April 2013
This is a reasonable account of a rich and interesting life, but you can't escape the impression of a rather privileged upbringing, including an Eton education. Vigors claims that he didn't fit in too well at Eton, but nevertheless gives a long and rather tedious description of it. I was only really interested in the flying stories, but there were long tracts - most of which I skipped - about his hunting days.
So, quite good if you are interested in the man, not so good if you want to hear more about the aircraft and flying.
