Tales of My Time

Tales of My Time

by RaymondBaxter (Author)

Synopsis

From such disparate experiences as hair-raising escapes at the controls of a Spitfire over Sicily and occupied Holland to speaking to the nation while suspended in a box near the roof of Westminster Abbey, Raymond Baxter has endless tales to tell. A renowned Formula 1 Grand Prix commentator, he also competed in and reported on fourteen consecutive Monte Carlo Rallies and thirty Farnborough Air Shows where, as a veteran combat pilot, he flew a Harrier on two occasions. The author was also the instigator of the Dunkirk Little Ships organisation and still owns L'Orage, which took part in the original 1940 rescue of beleaguered British troops and in which he has returned to Dunkirk on several commemorative events. His collaborator, Tony Dron, is a renowned racing driver and journalist.
