Her brother Geoffrey built our airport between the wars.

In typical Brit abroad mode he got fed up with all the local bureaucracy so just went ahead and did it, he didn't even own the land, he learned all about airfield construction on the ferry and simply laid steel sheets out over a field.

No assurance decennelle in those days, some would say not much has changed, I try to rendre hommage to him in all my works :D

I didn't read the cause of death. That would explain FFS's comment. You can come of the naughty step FFS.
