Not radio related but I was saddened to hear
of the death of Henry Allingham. I never met
the man but I feel I have lost yet another link to
my own past. My late maternal grandfather
served on HMS Barham as a Lieutenant
Instructor (Navigation) during the battle of
Jutland. A few months ago the last of my grandfathers
maths scholarship students, Prof Jack Good,
who worked for Alan Turing at Bletchley Park
also passed away.

RIP Mr Allingham.
