Harold Strachan's promotion from bomber pilot to explosives inventor.

I suddenly get this surprise phone call, tinkle tinkle, and a voice of pure honey wants to know if I would mind if this university were to confer a doctorate on me. Hell no, say I with my Jaap accent, I have been called many things in this life: Opblaser, Traitor and Madman, plus a few I wouldnt want to put to paper even in Noseweek, so being called Doctor would be a nice change, thanks.
