Ralph was both the inspiration and a great help in my Master's and PhD studies, and just before Christmas was at Brooklands giving advice and support on my latest project.

Happy Birthday Ralph - and thanks!

He was kind enough to help me out too, if slightly bemused at my interest in the P.1121. A gentleman and talented engineer.
