Captain Hook
« on: November 04, 2006, 05:06:26 PM »
The legless pilot Douglas Bader is of course well known. However, there also was a handless pilot in the thirties when looking at this picture. I have scanned it in its original sepia colours. Unfortunately the picture came without any explaining text It is an original Wide World Photos press photo and there must be a story behind this shot of this modern Captain Hook!

Anybody out there with any ideas??
