Pay Respect

From Don Hazeldine

Chris, I don’t know if the AAC have caught up with this news – i posted it on the 664 Sqn site. For members of 664 in Minden in the early 80s – I’ve just seen this post by CeCe Ponsonby – ‘It is with deep sadness to share my sorrow with John’s Facebook contacts, that my darling lost his very short fight battle with cancer. He died peacefully in his sleep last night, surrounded by us and deep love. We are heartbroken 💔’

John Ponsonby was a Royal Green Jacket and served with 664 Sqn 1980-1983 and then transfered to the RAF, achieved the rank of Air Vice Marshal. He eventually retired as Managing Director of AgustaWestland Ltd/Leonardo Helicopters (UK)
