John Owen-Jones, who lives in Devon, recently saw our article on a dinner held by Biggleswade Model Aircraft Club during the 1950s, first published nearly two years ago (on May 24, 2013).

It was sent to him by Tricia Turner whose late husband Martin was also a member of the club and John was able to identify some more of the names in the picture.

Third from left next to Derek Bing is Gordon Ball whose parents used to live in Drove Road. John himself is on the bottom row on the left next to Dick Bennett and on the right he thinks is Mr Webb.
“Not many of us left now” says John who has been flying paragliders for the last 20 years but has recently started making models again now he has grandsons.

Thanks go to John for getting in touch.
