  • Jack was a neighbour of mine when I lived in Haywards Heath. He used to swim in my pool, which I had constructed in the back garden. We became friends and he visited my office in Queeen Anne's Gate, Westminster with another former RAF friend. I lost contact with him when I moved to Ansty. I regret that now! He was such a character, I miss him dearly. Maurice Grant Baguley
