It is with deep sadness that I carry this news of the passing of Jenks, Many of us who served at RAF Greatworth and RAF Jurong will of course remember Keith Jenkins.He died of respiratory failure on August 14th and was cremated on 2nd Sept in Torquay. his mother died earlier this year (Feb?). He was of course a great comfort to her over the years and I'm sure he missed her very much when she passed away.

A nice surprise is the aquisition of two portraits of the Mrs Eels to be, pictured in uniform at the rank of Flt. Lt., but, what was her name? at this time and serving a commission, she would still be single, unless anyone knows better? She is pictured again, some years later at the RAF Greatworth Christmas bash of '62 picking the draw. Alas, no picture of George here, we'll have to scrutinise the gallery to see if there is a glimpse of him? There is a severe shortage of pictures of our elite d'cour from yesteryear, SWO's and CO's in particular. Not surprising, because in those ole days, `they' didn't mix much with the `ranks', shame really, because they were an important part of our lives.

Edited and corrected rank.
