I met John first when he was posted to No. 79 Squadron, which I commanded at R.A.F.Chivenor1969-1971. He was an instructor on the tactics side of the Squadron and had been a pilot for many years after beginning his flying as - I believe - a Sergeantaircrew member, . Whilst on 79, an opportunity arose for one of our pilots to train as an aerobatic pilot to give Hunter displays throughout the summer seasons. I pressed John to take this task on, which he did and did very well, representing the Royal Air Force throughout Europe. After leaving the Service, he set up "FANFARE" as a supplier of all things electrical for model flying, as well as much relied-upon E advice and help. He will be much missed by his family, friends and members of the E world. Chris Golds
