    I'm sure that most of you have heard about this tragedy that took place not far from where we live here in UK. In case it somehow passed you by, the PEDRO in a DUST OFF exercise crashed into the dunes in the early evening of tuesday at Cley-next the-Sea, Norfolk County, England, killing all four crew members.

    I made contact with their home base of RAF Lakenheath earlier today, to see about signing a Book of Condolence - these are the emails covering that event - please feel free to give your support to the families and friends of our lost airmen, one of whom leaves a wife and one-year-old daughter.

    Sir - I would be grateful to be advised if you have an on-line Book of Condolence that I can sign on behalf of the many serving and retired military personnel, and the civilians on the numerous stateside websites to which I contribute.
