The last I heard, Cecil Lewis (who wrote Sagittarius Rising) was alive
and doing well on the island of Corfu. He would be 96 this year. In
1989 he was featured on the cover of 'WWI Aeroplanes' flying a Tiger
Moth on his 90th birthday. As I allowed my membership in C&C to lapse
I don't have any up-to-date info. but I hope he is still around. I
can't find my copy of his book so Eisenhour must have borrowed it!
