Charles Daniel R.I.P.

That would be right Rhys. Mind you that's not surprising as Charles' GTO was a road going version of the 1963 ? Le Mans race car. It had no racing provenance but had the full blown 4 litre engine.

Leroy Spencer

This is not gospel but I think Leroy went back to Sierra Leone and went on to become chief pilot for Sierra Leone Airways. I met him briefly (can't remember where) a couple of years after he left...

It's a little disconcerting to hear that so many chums and collegues have passed on, especially those that were near my age or younger. Sad to hear about Geoff Skelton as he and I joined Dan-Air at...

Gordomac, good to hear that all went well for you, actually rather better than well. BTW, you were not alone in suffering the 'Whitton effect'. His personality was such that most of us felt somewhat...
