    Thank you for this one Pocossin. Is really great to know at least a bit of who the person behind the name was and find such great surprises like this one.

    Indeed it is, Sergio, and thank you for posting a link. Sherrill had guts as well as brains. This book is truly a treasure.

    "Also, during World War II I had the unusual experience,
    when in a fighter plane making an attack on military installations
    at Kure, Japan, of seeing a shell leave the muzzle
    of a gun and come slowly floating up towards me. I finally
    realized that if I didn't do something, it would hit me, so I
    maneuvered my plane to avoid it. I watched it pass me and
    explode slightly behind me. This occurred when I was about
    7,000 feet altitude. Actually the shell was coming towards
    me at the rate of about 2,500 ft/sec and I was approaching
    it at about 500 ft/sec. So we were closing towards each
    other at the rate of around 3,000 feet a second. Thus all
    this happened in less than 3 seconds, that is, the time it would
    take you to say "one and two and". But to me it was a
    long time with plenty of opportunity to observe, think, analyze~
    react and watch. So it is with Universal Time, where timing
    is coordinated with circumstances" (Heritage of Change,100-101).
