Miles Student: The men working on this are repairing the elevator for the wing. They have started the manufacture of the flaps which were missing, having been lost whilst the rest of the aeroplane was stored.

John Bold 1934-2011

John died unexpecedly, his funeral was very well
attended. John had been invaluable in the early days of
the Museum, taking over as building manager, his career
as an electrical engineer with the CEGB playing a useful
part in that role. John had been the holder of a PPL and
was a native of Portsmouth. He was active in the then
Royal Berkshire Aviation Society organising visits to
many locations, Aviation Museums and airfields,near
and far. John had lived in Woodley for many years and
leaves a widow, Daphne and two daughters who shared
his interest in aviation.
