Alex is from Scotland and is married with 2 children. He currently works as a service engineer installing, servicing and repairing Postal Franking machines, photocopiers and general office equipment. His area covers the whole of Scotland. His interest in aircraft, and biplanes in particular, started when he read ‘Faith, Hope and Charity’ by Kenneth Pullman and ‘Ace of Aces’ by E C R Baker as a teenager. This gave him an interest in RAF pre-WWII biplanes, especially the Gloster Gladiator, although he does branch out into more modern aircraft now and again with the likes of the Mosquito.
