Update (5th August)

It is my sad duty to report the recent death of retired Warrant Officer Ken (Jumbo) Jeavons. Ken served from November 1958 to May 1994 on SI and Dogs. He joined the RAF Police Association in 1996 and was a founder member of the South West Area Branch serving for many years as the Branch Vice Chairman.

Funeral arrangements not yet known.

May Ken Rest in Peace.

John Walton

In line with Ken's wishes there will not be a funeral.  Ken will be cremated, and his daughter will take his ashes to Germany where they will be scattered at RAF Wegberg with his wife Jean.

I was browsing the website as my father the late Group Captain Jim Sharpe was in the RAFP and have to let you know that his wife Betty Sharpe sadly passed away last month.

Thank you
