You remember Bert Papps, don’t you?
Recently I was sitting on his bench and it reminded me of some of the amazing things he did.
Like the time he ran the four minute mile to check if it was safe for Roger Bannister to have a go. What a star.
Then there was the time his plane was shot down in the Battle of Britain, and instead of giving up he landed tail-first so he could carry on firing his guns up into the sky at the enemy.
Or do you remember when he invented Worcestershire Sauce? It’s hard to believe it now, but before he came along, if you wanted to put something obscure on your cheese on toast, you had to whisk some vinegar into egg whites and pour that over instead.
Let’s all share our Bert Papps memories here.
