Be good to hear from anyone who does :-)
Not been on the forum for a couple of years so missed this post.

David, I never met your brother Richard but I knew your father well. On one occasion when he was a bit strapped for cash, I took a half share of the Chipmunk (G-AMXL) to help him out. This was a particularly well-balanced example of the type but was beginning to look a little dowdy in Norman Niblock's old livery. Many years later when living in Malta, I met a chap who claimed to have lived next door to your father's family.

I remember Tim with fondness. And his always immaculate white hanky gripping the prop when hand starting an engine. Happy days.
