It is with sadness that I have to announce the death of Jim just six weeks short of his 92nd birthday on 24 June after a short illness.  His daughter Sue said his funeral was as he would have wanted it - lots of laughter with happy memories intermingled with the tears for the loss of a much loved father, grandfather and great grandfather.


Jim lived a long and eventful life judging from his memoirs and he lived it to the full.  Sue says he was "tickled pink" that some of them had been published and in turn we thank him again for permitting us to do so.


He has now gone to his beloved Gracie.
