lt cmdr John Eyton-jones pictures on ship

On the 6th May 1982 my wifes farther Lt Cmdr John Eyton-Jones from 802 squadron left the invincible on a cap over the noth Atlantic during the Falklands war, he was flying shar no xz452 he never returned, my wife has no grave to visit and very few photos of him , we have posted all kinds of messages on lots of different forums and would ask anybody reading who was on the Invincible at the time of the falklands campaign to try to remember if they have any photos of John on deck or in his plane or any stories about him so as we can see what life was like on ship before his death.We posted a message on the Pprune website but as yet have had no photos.More than anything else we would love to show our 3 boys their Grandfarther with his friends and shipmates, they would love to speek to him themselves but he has made the ultimate sacrifice, so we ask you for your help.
Many thanks for reading

I served on first commission with him but I think you will find it was 801 squadron under Cmdr Sharkey Ward.

I have a commission book lurking around somewhere & I will look to see if there are any phots that can be scanned.

Left Invinc (demobbed) a few days before she sailed for the falklands and was sad to hear the news of course, I met him (I did his pay!) and from memory was a nice chap.

There may well be reference to him in the Squadron line book, some of these are still held by the squadron and some are at the FAA Museum, they have a research facility available but you need to contact them via their website. If it was 801 Sdn then they are currently (temporarily decommissioned) I have pm'd you with contact details.

Thanks so much China
if you have anything at all please send it on, I was interested to hear from my wife's mother recently just how much a Harrier pilot earned at this time (not a lot) when you consider what had to be done to earn it, doesn't seem right that people(all service personel) to whom we owe such a lot, don't get looked after as well as they should.
Thanks again
Russ
