    Default Squadron Leader R A Jell DFC AFC.

    Gents,

    Trying without success to find the AFC awarded to Squadron Leader R A Jell DFC.

    Can anyone please help before my blood pressure becomes critical!

    Regards

    COR!! there's a 'blast from the past'.

    R A Jell was the chief instructor when I went through officer cadet training. Obviously, we weren't on first name terms - I called him 'Sir' and he called me; 'that man there'. He was a pretty good cove and the organisation seemed to work well. I seem to recall that he died a short time ago, having hit 90.

    Hi Colin,

    I am in contact with his son, Barry. Yes sadly Ronnie Jell died only recently.

    Cheers
