Thanks for stopping by and taking time out of your day to read my post. My intent is to put a smile on your face. Hopefully you’ll go away with some information you may have forgotten about or did not know. Now sit back and enjoy.
Frank was born in Earlsdon, Coventry, England back in 1907 to Moses and Sara. He attended school at Leamington College for Boys, however after due to a faltering business ran by his father he had to quit. He then devoted himself to being an engineer and mechanic. However, here is the rest of the story.
In January 1923 he passed the RAF (Royal Air Force) entrance exam with high marks however it was short lived as he did not pass the medical exam. Standing only 5’0” and having a small chest he started a regiment of training and eating. He tried again 6 months later and not only passed the written exam he also passed the medical. He was so proficient he soloed after only 13.5 hours of training. This was also short lived as he enjoyed showboating and overconfidence which gave me numerous “red ink warnings”. So what was he to do except to work in development. So now is the time to ask the question. For what will he go down in the history books for? Well you are in luck he is credited with single-handedly inventing the turbojet engine.
