has been pointed out to the Editor that, in the last Newsletter, No.21,
it was implied that the Association was responsible for fully funding
the Camm bronze bust. This is not the case; the Association funded the
budget over-run of the bust and fully funded the framed information
panel. It should also be pointed out that sculptor Ambrose Barber
charged only his costs for the bronze, saving the RAF Club several
The Kingston Aviation Heritage Project 'Eggheads' team has been
invited to participate in Series 10 of the quiz starting in the New
Year. Sadly, David Cooper, the standby member, died from a stroke in
June and two others have had to withdraw. So, three volunteers are
needed to join John Gough, Trevor Jordan and Les Palmer, two to take
part and one standby. The standby would have to be present at the
filming, an interesting experience, but would only actually take part
in the unlikely event of a team member being unable to perform due, for
example, to an attack of nerves, fainting or an incapacitating accident
or illness! Travelling expenses are paid.
Subjects covered are: entertainment, arts and books, sport,
politics, history, geography, food and drink, science, and music.
Reasonable knowledge in only two or three of these would be needed. We
plan a few rehearsals to polish our presentation skills. The current
series can be seen on weekdays at 6.00 pm on BBC 2. Also, see NL.20,
Please do volunteer and so save this
initiative to gain publicity, and even funds, for the Kingston Aviation
Heritage Project; 'phone Trevor Jordan on 020 8994 2018.
