    Ah, Shamus, the good Captain seems to be enjoying the festivities I notice he said WW2 era, and not specifically WW2 itself. I suppose it might depend on when it is reckoned the unpleasantness really started

    Despite your generous supply of three tips, no-one has come up with an answer captain. I suggest that you provide it and then pose another.

    OK, I'm back and I hope you all you a nice Christmas and saw the new year in with appropriate festivities.

    Our mystery Aviator was; Arthur Chin Shui-Tin. (Art Chin)

    He was born in Portland Oregon and initially joined the Cantonese Airforce to fight the Japanese.

    Sorry for making the clues a bit too obscure or perhaps trying to throw you off the scent. :P

    Read all about him on the following links.

    Chinese biplane fighter aces - 'Arthur' 'Art' Chin Shui-Tin

    and

    Someone else have a go please, it's 42 degrees C here and too hot to think.

    Cheers.

    Well done, you beat us fair and square. Mr Lukins, I think you ought to come up with the next question.
