John “Jumbo” Weeks

“Jumbo” joined the Boy Entrants on l6″‘ October I956, but as far as I can recall, I never actually served with him after Cosford. If my memory serves me correctly his nickname was derived from the fact that he had lived in Kenya during his childhood, so I guess in terms of inventiveness, “Jumbo” was just about what one would have expected!

He was a nice guy and I was sorry to hear of his death.

He had been approached a number of times to join the association but we were never successful in persuading him to do so.
