George Duffee RIP
 
Sad to have to report the passing of noted Comet Line evader and British Airways captain George Duffee DFC at his home in Aberaeron on 21st December 2018. Janet, his beloved wife of 72 years, predeceased him by 2 weeks.
George in the Pyrenees with the legendary Comet guide Florentino Goicoechea in 1955:

Sorry to hear the sad news.
Flew with George in the 60s & 70s but until now had not heard the back story.
RIP

People often say at times like this that it was an honour and a privilege to have known the deceased - but in George's case it was true.
