Wednesday’s Piece

What breed of man, at this critical hour, could lead us out of crisis and conflict to harmony and greatness? Unhesitatingly I take as an example Lord (‘Boom’) Trenchard. Born 1873, died 1956 and buried aright in Westminster Abbey.

“A giant among men, physically and morally, a legendary leader, with an uncanny gift for picking men, he was that almost unique combination, the man of vision and the man of decision.”

“A giant in his own right, he kept faith with his high and lonely destiny.”

He has for long been my hero.
