Mike Watkins

We were shocked and saddened to read in the Times that our good friend and colleague Mike Watkins had died on 17 November at Hereford County Hospital after a short illness. The funeral service will be at 1300 next Monday (18 December) at St Lukes Church, Norfolk Road, Maidenhead. Family flowers only, but it is suggested that donations in lieu should be sent to the RAF Benevolent Fund for (in Mike’s own words) “the benefit of those who have been less fortunate than myself”.

  1. The 24 Sec Says:

    The Association Committee responded to this news and have sent a donation of £50 to the RFABF and ex Chairman Richard Bates attended the funeral service.

    Mike was very interested in the Squadron history, in particular the chevron markings and sent in an article for our 2006 newsletter.

  2. The 24 Sec Says:

    The Association received a letter this week (w/c 29 Jan 07) from the solicitors acting on behalf of Mike noting correspondence from ourselves and advising us out of courtesy so that our records may be updated.
