A brief account of Philip Fowler's life, written by Fowler in 1966. P. K. Fowler served in both World War One and World War Two, and was a motor vehicle trader with R Porter in Palmerston North. He always maintained a close interest in flying throughout his life.

The birth date mentioned in the script appears to be a mistake as official sources cite Fowler's birth date as 1895.
