LIFE'S TOO SHORT TO CRY (Special Limited Edition)


Price per Unit (piece): £50.00


It is not often that a remarkable gem of a manuscript is uncovered and published. The persoanl memoirs of Tim Vigors DFC is just one example. Born in Hatfield but raised in Eire and educated at Eton and Cranwell. Early 1940 found Tim in France flying Fairey Battle bombers and soon after he converted to fighters, joining 222 Squadron with whom he had distinguished service over Dunkirk and then during The Battle of Britain, when he became an ace.

He was transferred to the Far East in January 1941 as a flight commander with 243 Squadron and then to 453 Squadron RAAF. On 10th December he led a flight of Buffaloes to cover the sinking Prince of Wales and Repulse. Dramatically shot down and burned he was evacuated to Java then from there to India.

Throughout, the author describes his experiences in an honest, refreshing way. It is a fascinating and valuable record, one destined to be seen as a classic.
