    Dear Libbie – my mother received your book as a Christmas gift, she flew with BOAC between 67-78 as Rosalie Lawrence then (Ros Gatenby now), and recognised many of the people and the anecdotes – I think it’s the most successful gift we ever got her!

    She would just like to let you know what a wonderful job she feels you’ve done with the book, it’s something she will treasure. She hopes to be able to get in touch at some point and share her memories!

    Best wishes,
    Faye (was Gatenby)
