I heard yesterday, and it has been announced today, that Surgeon Vice Admiral Ian Jenkins died suddenly yesterday morning. He was one of my first bosses in the Navy when he was MOIC of RNH Haslar and he subsequently went on to be MDG(N) and then Surgeon General before retiring and taking up the position of Governor of Windsor Castle. He was a truly wonderful man with a fantastic family and quite easily the nicest officer I ever had the pleasure to work for. He has left an indelible mark on the lives of many and will be very sorely missed. RIP Sir.
