I now find your present stance on the matter of if Douglas Bader was briefly in Liverpool or not in1942 somewhat baffling.
For many months if not years you and some of your associates from another place have been hounding me incessantly and you in particular have
steadfastly shouted to the rooftops that I am variously a liar, a deluded old man, an imposter, and an enemy of the once great Douglas Bader etc.
Your cry has always been that as DB was a POW from 1941 until 1945 and that is the official line, and it is set in concrete in the history books,
therefore there can be no way that he came back to England in 1942 as I not only claim with a conviction greater than yours, but not to forgot that
that regardless of what you, the history books or the Government want to feed to the world at large, I know that he was there and nothing will EVER
change my testimony.
Suddenly however, you have changed your attitude and are now not quite so sure in your attempts to put me and my story down but, are now basing your
argument against me along the lines of “How do I know it was Bader that I was involved with at the Stork Hotel?” I thought that you were totally
convinced that he could not have been there or indeed in England at that time?
Believe me, you and any other doubters, if you had been confronted by Douglas Bader perched on a shabby wartime backwater hotel room chair in his
underpants and vest with the stumps of his amputated legs exposed to full view and, his artificial legs lying on the floor next to him, you would have
known who you were with!
Then when you tried to make conversation with a man who is now regarded by many but not all who came in contact with him during the war to have been a
nasty ill mannered, ill tempered self centered bully who regarded those such as I, a common waiter, to be so far below his social standing that I was
working class scum, you WOULD know as I did that this was not some senseless jape perpetrated by those with much more important duties to perform.
Then notwithstanding the fact that you were being treated like a piece of excrement by this “Great Hero” you did, without any experience or
medical background do what he curtly told you to do and massaged his stumps with methylated spirits then helped him to install his legs and in return
did not even get a pleasant thank you just a non committal grunt of dismissal.
I now ask you all, who, why and for what good reason would anybody present such a scenario as a prank, jape or joke on an intelligent 19 year soon to
go off to war?
THAT IS HOW I KNOW I WAS DEALING WITH DOUGLAS BADER and you and this Forum are the first people ever who have been given that fuller description of my
encounter with Douglas Bader.
Now back to you APM 45. I am amazed that as you want so badly to prove my story bogus why now, as you claim to have a gilt edged witness who can with
conviction debunk my story, do you not make every effort to produce her or sworn evidence from her to prove her authenticity and provide her genuine
account of what you now regard as the TRUE events back in 1942?
Do this and you will have won the argument I presume so what are you waiting for? But should you fail to do this, you are obviously history.
To reiterate, those who would have read all my story from day one three years ago will know that I went to great pains to concede that I HAD NO
EVIDENCE to substantiate my story and that any theories that I put forward to support my claims were and STILL are just that, THEORIES. I also said
that the whole thrust of my publishing the story was to hopefully find supporting evidence and, I AM STILL TRYING despite the efforts of the sadly out
of step SPM45’s of this world!
Please don’t keep on telling me I have no supporting evidence – I KNOW!!!!
However, other supporting evidence WILL be produced sooner or later when the Government releases some more WWII closed files – IT WILL HAPPEN be
sure, with the proviso, of course that your star witness provided via “The Man from The Planet of The Apes” and fully authenticated can prove me
Now please leave me in peace and let me know when “Ruby” is available for interrogation. I have many questions that will quickly prove her
authenticity or otherwise.
