Dear Colleagues, it is my sad duty to announce the passing of a former Snowdrop. My father 'Fred' Hillocks passed away this morning aged 88 following a battle with cancer. I doubt if any on here will have known him. He served for 5 years in the RAF Police in the early 1950s. His first posting was Cottesmore followed by RAF Hospital Rinteln Germany where he met my Mum. As he said to me "88 not out, not a bad innings"! RIP Snowdrop

Mick Hillocks

Jim Clark , aka Joe 90 , who served 1970 - 1976 sadly passed away on 12 Sep 2020.
Joe was well known to many in Laarbruch and High Wycombe..
He was a bit of a rogue, but a likeable kind hearted one.
He liked to party but could play a mean guitar and spent many an hour in the Folk Club.
He suffered in his last few years and moved to Spain only last year. Sadly, his body gave up on him.
Rest in Peace my friend.

This was Jim last week with his son Timmy


I understand that Mike Honeyman died at home in Melksham on Monday 31st August. 

He served from 1953 to 1977, leaving in the rank of a Sergeant as a Dog Instructor.

Today members of the RAFPA Wiltshire Branch attended the funeral of former RAFP Sgt Mike Honeyman. Mike served from 1953 to 1977 and spent time as a QPD Instructor. He was a long standing member of the RAFPA having joined some 21 years ago. A small Honour Guard comprising of Keith Button, Peter Todd, Brian Flinn, Mike Archer, Ivan Carey and George Brookes paid their respects as the hearse approached the Chapel.
May Mike rest in peace.

Just heard of the passing of Justin Glover.  Iíll post more when I know more. Rest Easy Snowdrop
