Setting Sons VIII

JJV summarizes his life:

Born in the Raj. Battle of Britain, then fought in Africa against (Vichy) French. Raided Venice w/o damaging the art works. Feted in Malta and Cyprus. Led Free Italian squadrons against the Gerrys. Held up the British end in the Indonesian "years of living dangerously." "With very forthright, sometimes blunt views, he was excellent company."
