I thought it would be appropriate to acknowledge the recent passing of Lt Cdr John Wellham.

He was the last surviving aircrew member of the raid on Taranto - the FAAs finest hour.

An outstanding individual, an inspiring character and an absolute gentleman. We are poorer without him.

It was an honour to have met him.

G :cry:

Totally agree - often a guest at Yeovilton's Taranto Night Dinner, our last 'Man of Taranto' will be sorely missed.
