It's hard to know how to start this post, but I need to tell you that Wing Commander Sir Nigel Tetlington-Smythe, or Tet to his friends, had an accident last week and suffered a very serious brain injury. He passed away in hospital on Saturday 24th June.

He was useless with technology and I don't think he thought of himself as much of a writer either, but he loved this blog and was thrilled at the amount of views his posts got, how many fellow airgunners he met through it and how many people his tutorials helped. He would want me to leave the blog up in memory of him.

Wing Commander Sir Nigel Tetlington-Smythe, 'Tet', 05/10/1964 - 24/06/2017.
