John 'AJ' Probyn



Pay Respect

I regret to inform the wider Army Aviation family of the death of Major AJ Probyn (known as John) on 2 Sep 13 at the age of 90 years. John’s military career included service in the Second World War with the Glider Pilot Regiment. He also served with the Kings’ Regt and the Dorsets 1941 – 43 and with the Royal Sussex 1946 – 48. He is survived by his two daughters who wanted to inform John’s old comrades of his passing.


John’s funeral is to be held at Church near Leominster in Herefordshire. Though a date has not been set it is likely to be next week. John’s son in law is Nick Dinnage who is happy to be contacted on 07970570190.

The family would particularly welcome John’s old comrades to attend. For those who may not travel but who would like to pass on messages to the family please contact Nick, who would be pleased to hear from them
