Spitfire O’er Southampton“I didn’t know what to do. And I flew round in circles with ten people following me around in circles, them looking at me as a leader, and me not knowing what to do. And I can tell you, I prayed, I prayed. I didn’t know what to do, what to do. And God answered. He doesn’t answer you with a flash of lightning, he puts something in your head that you never thought of before. And I thought, ‘What I’d better do now is fly all the way back to Gibraltar,’ which was 850 miles in the opposite direction. So I set off. By the grace of God, I came across the wake of the Navy and found the Ark Royal and all the fleet, 20, 25 ships.” — Thomas Francis “Ginger” Neil
