Life's Too Short To Cry
Tim Vigors DFC


Reproduced with permission from 'Life's Too Short To Cry' the compelling story of a Battle of Britain Ace. 

Published by Grub Street 2006. ISBN 1904943616.


Tim Vigors fought with RAF 222 Squadron and became an ace during the Battle of Britain, destroying at least 16 enemy aircraft. He later transferred to the Far East in the defence of Malaya and Singapore and was shot down and very badly burned. His analysis of the disaster that befell Commonwealth forces in the Japanese capture of those countries makes for riveting reading.
