(Have you ever seen such a miserable looking bunch? - on death row maybe?? -
but this was the start of a wonderful life!)
Jerry Pook (DFC, MBE) couldn't make the 40th reunion, but sent his regards to all.
Jerry had a open heart surgery 10 years ago but as you can see, despite everything,
he is keeping him fit and well. (He doesn't look any different than he did in 1966- See archives)
Jerry is now working for the MoD as a Civil Servant Instructor on the Harrier GR7 Flight Simulator at Wittering
The citation for Jerry's DFC is as follows ...
Award promulgated in the London Gazette dated 11th October 1982
1 Squadron heading for the South Atlantic on the ill fated Atlantic Conveyor
With Pete Squire as Squadron Commander and Jerry as Flight Commander
the Argies had as much chance of scoring as we did at LTC on a Saturday night!
Member of the British Empire
Jerry was later awarded the MBE for his training work at the Tornado Trinational Training School at Cottesmore.
