Looking at pictures of these poor guys who were horribly burnt during WW2 even today is not pleasant viewing.
But through the efforts of such men as Archibald Mcindoe and his team the people of East Grinstead(close to Gatwick Airport) made these men feel welcome in there midst.
I listened to a little about this man on the radio and i must say it was very moving....at a time when these men were at there lowest ebb they went to pubs, the cinema and the local girls kept them company......because no matter what they looked like they were heroes.

A tale of happiness for the few that paid heavily in body and soul for there war efforts.
