I've seen The Height of Summer on quite a few blogs recently and thought I'd like to join in. My Royal Air Force ID card always had me at 170cm which roughly means 5' 7". When I asked The Teenage One to measure my height recently it seems I'm now only 168½cm which is 5' 6" (and a little bit).
Seems I've shrunk a little or the RAF had it wrong for 13 years!!
This is TTO and me at the RAF museum, Hendon (standing next to a Whirlwind helicopter. The type my Dad worked on in the late 1960s, early 70s. Just a little useless info there.)
He measures up to 180½cm or 5' 11 ¼ ". Nearly 6 ft which ever way you look at it.
I did think, looking at this photo, that the old diet needed to be resumed but then I remembered, TTO is as skinny as a rake and has about a 24" waist :0)
