Jack was a founder member of AHSA and QAM. He was an aviation historian of prodigous knowledge and memory, particularly for every local anniversary. He built up an extensive library and photograph collection. He was at one time our Archive Officer and was always active in arranging commemorative plaques. He seemed to appear in almost every photograph taken at QAM occasions. In latter days he was involved in documenting the history of RQAC. He passed away suddenly on 19th April 1996.
