Gywn "Taffy" Jenkins (BCal Engineering - Avionics Fitter)
It is with sadness we learn that Gywn passed away on 8th April 2020, aged 85, he succumbed to Pneumonia in East Surrey Hospital.  Sadly he lost his wife Mary, who had been ill, a few days beforehand.

My sincere condolences go out to his family, friends and former colleagues. Gywn joined BUA in 1967 and worked through into BCal, based in the maintenance hangars at Gatwick. Gwyn retired from BA in 1997.

Gwyn was on the same shift as me, progressing with BCAL then BA, until he retired in 1997. He always looked on the bright side of life and it was his humour and wit that got him through.

From Brian Wassell:  Sorry to hear about Taffy, remember him from my line days. RIP
