Porsche 997 and the Great War


I’ve just had a visit from an Australian chap, who is on holiday in the UK and wanted to drop by for a chat. We spent a pleasant hour or two sitting in the garden, drinking coffee and talking cars.

I was touched when he told me that he really enjoyed a magazine feature I wrote some time ago. It was about a trip I made to France in a Porsche 997 to discover the grave of my great uncle, William Wise, who was killed in the First World War. It’s a story that’s stuck in my mind – mainly because it was important for me to unearth the tragic story of my ancestor, but also because it was a lovely 997 with a very simple specification.

It’s good to know that the story has been enjoyed so far from home!
