    Default John Havers 1927 - 2016

    I have just received this sad information. John was most well known for his research on airlines and airliners in the post-war period, where many of the ex-RAF airmen got employment. His vast knowledge and personal experience was always most helpful.
    If anyone wants to contact his family, please drop a pm.

    John passed away peacefully on Monday 4 April, at home, in Honiton after an illness that was diagnosed in late November 2015.

    He was in contact with some of you while ill at home and so this will not come as a shock, but to those of you that did not know he had been ill, please be assured that his last months were spent surrounded by his family and friends.

    The cremation will be held at 2.30 pm on 14 April at East Devon Crematorium, London Road, Strete Ralegh, Whimple, Exeter, EX5 2PT. Directions on how to find the Crematorium are attached. There will be flowers, but only from the family.

    It was John’s wish that no one should wear black, instead he wants you all to wear bright colours, as he wants it to be a celebration.

    Afterwards it would be wonderful if you can join us for refreshments at a nearby hostelry (details of which will be provided on the order of service).

    If you need further details please contact Richard, on the email address below or his home telephone number

    Please forgive this impersonal email, but we went through John’s email address book to ensure that we reached as many of you as possible.

    Best wishes

    Bettina Havers

    Very sad news, Franek. John was an enthusiast with a special interest in the history of West Country airfields.
