Narrator: Hugh Feast became one of Bob's closest friends. Like Bob, he came from London and was the same age, just twenty. In November 1941, they were posted to RAF Shawbury to learn advanced navigation and night flying.

The scene ends with the friends ribbing Hughie, holding up the room key, and exclaiming, "Oh, this key, the key to your heart. Ah, that one."

As the film proceeds, various people are interviewed about their memories of Bob and how they met him. The interview with Bea Couldrey demonstrates how such interviews are integrated into the film.
