If this isn't the right place for it then please feel free to move it.

But I really did feel that it ought to be recorded. We are still awaiting news from Burma, but in the meantime this is heartwarming information.

And the name of the engine wasn't bad either: Merlin... Quite magical. It was used in the Mustang too, under license.
