Very sad to hear of 'Boddo's' illness. I have had dealings (not many) with David over many years,both personally ,and by mail or telephone,most recently with regard to his Boddo Mills' engines,and I have always found him to be a 100% genuine guy.Wishing him a speedy recovery,and best wishes to him and his family................Mal.

Boddo is the guy who inspired me through his writing, when I was 13 years old, to try to build a single channel SE5a - even though I couldn't afford the gear. It was a hopeless failure (all my fault!) - but it was great fun! And that was, oh gosh, 40 years ago!
We can't do it without you man, C'mon Boddo, this hobby needs your common sense and knowledge - here's expecting that you'll be back at the sharp end real soon!

As was stated in a recent RCM&E, DB is the "Greatest aeromodeller
of our time". Very true.
Very best wishes to Boddo for a quick recovery.

From me too, Boddo. My wife has been where you are now, and she is still with us!
Don't give in. Chemo is pretty rough going, and you may lose your appetite, but fight it, and you will get through.

I have read David's books and articles avidly over the years. I learnt to fly on a DB Tyro. So when he came over to ask about my model at a Flair open day a few years ago I felt like I was being approached by royalty. In fact he was a super down to earth guy who was so easy to talk to he could have been a member of my own club. Super chap. Get well soon.

Your too tough to let anything like this beat you, and I'm sure you'll get through it, and be back on the flight line spurring us on again.
The very best wishes for a full recovery,
