Regular readers of this blog will know of the work of Alex Bateman, a long-time researcher of the Dams Raid and author of the book, No 617 ‘Dambusters’ Sqn, (Osprey 2009). Over the eight years I have been writing this blog, he has sent me a number of pictures and pieces of information and expressed forthright views in his comments on various posts.
It is therefore with some shock that I recently learned that on Monday 3 May, at Wood Green Crown Court in London, Alex Bateman pleaded guilty to the possession of indecent images and videos of children. On Friday of last week, 27 May, he was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment.
