  • My father,Flight Lieutenant Keith Malcolmson, would have been 100 this year. I remember him with great pride and affection and I will wear his memorial cross and medals this ANZAC day. In the words of poet John Gillspie Magee he has danced the skies of laughter-silvered wings, and touched the face of God.
