kamikaze (?)

heard about a guy called 'Roberts' or possibly 'Robertson' whilst on the isle.
seemed he was a shackleton driver with a yen for low flying. once, while indulging his passion, he was supposed to have passed so low over the officers' lines, that he took down all the washing off their clothes lines.
did any of you witness this splendid event?
remember 'my' pilot, sqd. ldr. Churchill returning from one of the met. patrols, switching down both engines on one side and giving the impression there was a major malfunction taking place. probably the control tower knew what he was up to, but it provided a bit of excitement for the land-lubbers, judging by the assembled hordes gazing upwards.
