When Prince Charles visited RNZAF Base Ohakea on 15 November the Chief of Air Force, AVM Peter Stockwell presented him with a copy of the newly published Wigram – Birthplace of Military Aviation in New Zealand.
This was a particularly appropriate birthday gift as, not only is the Prince the Air Commodore in Chief of the RNZAF, but on page 310 there’s a 1983 picture of a much younger prince inspecting a parade accompanied by the then Flight Lieutenant Stockwell!
I’m only putting this on my website because I’m unlikely to have Mighty Moves and The New Zealand Woman (or indeed any two of my books) topping the Best Seller list at the same time ever again! You may think this is a shameless skite, and perhaps it is. But, I’m determined to enjoy the fleeting moment of fame.
