Is it too late to get into the database?

I wonder if you would consider my father Bernard Rose, for a pilot in the RAF? I ask because he actually volunteered for RAF service (in 1941, too young before that) wanting to serve as a bomber pilot, but upon discovering he was a skilled tradesman and had served an apprenticeship, they decided that this would make him imminently suitable for an RAF trade. He had been apprenticed as a printer, so of course they made him... a radar operator (or RDF operator as it was called when he started). Still you have to remember that radar was still a relatively new concept (and actually "secret" during the war) so they probably didn't know exactly who was most suitable. Anyway, since there's a good chance I wouldn't be writing this if he had been a bomber pilot so I can't complain! Even still his rather unusual service as a radar operator did lead to him storming ashore on D-Day on Sword Beach with a forward air control/interception unit (15053 FDP) under the assumption there would be air to ground attack (that didn't really materialise of course).

So sorry for this unrequested history, but I am very proud of my father's service and like to take the opportunity to tell of it whenever I can. However, although he's not with us anymore I think he would get a kick out of the idea of finally getting the opportunity to bomb Germany as a (virtual) pilot!

I thought about requesting myself to be added, but it wouldn't be right since I'm an army man!

Hi Hard Sarge, maybe I'm blinder than a bat has a right to be, but I can't seem to find this guy in the game:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Antoine_de_Saint-Exup%C3%A9ry

:D

Wiki doesn't have his unit, but I'm guessing that would be the La Hache one (Only french one that flies the recon lightning)

let me check my data base, when I get the big beast running again, I know the pilot, know the story, got the LW pilots in the game, so should have him, if not will correct
