A WW2 R.A.F. pilot's survival story…

Me and My ‘Nimrod’

Me and My 'Nimrod'

Me and My 'Nimrod'

Quote from ‘One Life Left’ when Wg. Cdr. Garlick took one of these to 20,000 feet without oxygen – “With an official limit of ten thousand feet for flights without oxygen the C.O. called for volunteers for this trip, which was just about as high as a Nimrod would go and, because of the almost continuous talking required, would be comparable to a greater height than the twenty thousand feet asked for. To my surprise I found myself to be the only volunteer; for a flight that proved to be completely without incident.”
