"... Les Allison and Harry Hayward are to be congratulated on the book They Shall Grow Not Old, which records the names of over 18,000 airmen and airwomen who lost their lives in the Second World War. The Commonwealth War Graves commission looks after the graves and memorials of these brave People all over the world as it does of all the fallen of both world wars. We have much in common. I therefore send you best wishes from the Royal Air Force Association and the Commission, and trust that all who know of your work will give you the support you need."
