For those who didn’t attend the last meeting we have some sad news of the passing
of one of our founder members Tom Hiett. Up until a couple of years ago, before ill
health stopped him, he regularly attended our monthly meetings, and was a good supporter
of our various social events. He was a very active member, serving the society as
committee member, chairman and editor of our quarterly news sheet.
It is probably the last one of these, as editor, for a long time, that most members
would remember him. He would produce these on his old typewriter, always ending on
a comical note.
His funeral is on Monday 7th November, 11:00am at St Andrews Church, Hamble

Timewatch:WW1 Aces Falling
Tuesday 14th March
Edward Mannock VC and James McCudden VC rose from modest backgrounds to become two
of Britain's greatest fighter aces in World War One. As their number of victories
grew, so did their chances of dying in flames. Timewatch tells the story of their
battle to survive against the odds, and of the 90-year-old mystery surrounding the
death of one of them.
