Sgt Ian (Jock) Petrie

Sgt Ian (Jock) Petrie passed away in about 2015 after a short illness.
I first met Ian in 1966 at Tengah where he took over as the boss of 81 Sqdn Camera Section. He ruled with a rod of iron however in civilian life he was in fact a big caring old softie!

After demob he moved to Southampton where his wife, June, came from. He worked for a local area television company which involved a lot of airborne photography. A lot of his work, both stills and video, was shown on regional television.

A great character who will be sadly missed.
