John was called up in 1940 at the age of eighteen to join the RAF Regiment.

He served in Italy, Germany and Denmark. He still talked of his time in the service and kept in touch with some member of his squadron until his death in 2009 at the age of 86. Until the age of 83, John collected every year for the RAFA Wings Appeal.

Although he served in the RAF, John had never flown until he was 83 when we holidayed in Majorca (pictured).
