John Powell

Hilton John Powell 1913 – 2005

A lot of people will have last seen John at East Kirkby at the launch of Dave Newham’s book. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Dave and John’s family.

He had been in poor health for a little while and was eventually taken into hospital in late July.

His funeral was at Cheltenham Crematorium on the 3rd August with his family and several RAFBEPA members present.

He lived for some ten years with Dave Newham and we know he will be missed. It was all the more poignant as we had only just published his life story in the autumn issue of Flashback, copied here.
