Brian Smee, Jaguar Mate forever.

I lost a friend in the pandemic, a man whom was in love with the BR121 Breguet/BAC feline. He brought his local museum a frame, He paid the costs to restore it externally. Some ex Coltishall nutter came along and said "I can get it to run!" Brian put his wallet to the arguments of an expert. He took the advice of I with trepidation at times. It was hard work. He saw her skinned and walking. he never saw her roar and run. I will be a limited number at his funeral next week. His legacy is this.
