Mike was a well known and much respected Flight Engineer and had been suffering from cancer for the last year or so. He and Jean had visited us here only recently and he was very cheerful then despite knowing the score. They have lived on the Isle of Man for some years and one of their boys is there too still, I think, employed by Cathay. The other one is
quite near us in Sussex. He was a great model aircraft builder and regularly wrote articles for model magazines.
Mike passed away on Friday 13th 2020 just before his 88th birthday.
