Tragic news. I flew with Gordon on 6 Sqn Jaguars and he was a close mate. I visited him in Hong Kong and later in Cheltenham. Any news of the funeral?

Very sad to hear he was also CP at Oasis along with Atholl Buchan who was DFO whom has also died this year. Both of them were ex-CX and will be sadly missed
