Bill Malins

Bill Malins was one of the first officers to set foot on Sicilian soil when the Allies invaded the island in 1943 (and still has the top secret maps he was issued), and the same year he narrowly survived the deadly doodlebug which struck the Strand, killing more than 80 people. Bill was there when the Allies crossed the Rhine in 1945 in the closing stages of the war, and his squadron was one of the first inside the gates of Belsen when the notorious concentration camp was liberated. After completing a post-war world tour with the RAF Directorate of Accident Prevention, Bill gave up the airborne life in 1952 to return to the farm, where he has lived and worked ever since.

Customer Service Changeover: Please read

Over the course of this week, March 8th, 2020-->March 14th, 2020 (we hope!), we are migrating and switching over to an entirely new customer service system.

Now, we expect that this new system will enable us--when we're accustomed to it--to answer your emails more quickly and efficiently.  

Like everything, though, it's new to us and we're going to need some time to get used to it.  We've been working on the migration for the past year, over 170,000 emails (yes, really!) to now, and we're changing over our chat and contact forms, too. Please--try to be patient with us, if you don't hear from us immediately. Our same-day response promise is still in place, but our reply times may lag, a bit, over the next few days, thanks.
