RAF Bovingdon – The Hour that Never Was!

Aviation Trails

During the 1960s, a cult TV series hit the British Screens – ‘The Avengers’ starring  Patrick Macnee (as John Steed), and Diana Rigg (as Emma Peel).

In episode 9 of the fourth series, “The Hour That Never Was” the two characters go to an old airbase, the fictitious RAF Hamelin home to (also fictitious) 472 Squadron, where Steed had been invited to a party before the base was officially closed.

Burn The Maps

Kevin Brown Poetry

The uncharted path,

Upon which we met,

Was off the beaten track,

A road neither you or I -

Believed we would find ourselves on.

Through unknown terrain,

Two lost souls, wandered,

Aimlessly to some unexplored,

Waypoint, where paths -

And lives crossed.

Our adventure, thus far,

Has left us unscathed,

And although uncertain -

We choose to burn the maps,

Ignoring the peaks and valleys

Nothing with you is Insurmountable,

It is but a spectacular mystery,

You and I embrace.
