Subject: RE: Jane's Rainbow: for all needing support & comfort
Chantey Lass I have put a photo on my Facebook page, please feel free to look,at wendy ann simon, just ask to be my friend. There is also a photo taken in September 2013 ,mum is with the Chaplain General of the Royal Air Force when he dedicated the bench. My mother was a Waaf in WW2 and I have been reading her letters of April 1945, with VE Day next week , her memories of that day are very interesting. I may post them here if you would like to read them. I put a memory book together for mum three years ago and much of the information was taken from the two hundred letters that she wrote to my father while he was serving in N Africa, Malta (during the siege) and in Italy.

Nigel, dad received his MBE for charity work for RAFA. He raised an enormous amount of money for ex RAF men and women, and was a member from the end of the war till he passed away. His autobiography is quite an interesting read and I learnt so much about him when I read it, that generation kept lots of their memories to themselves, but I am sure the accident had a profound effect on him for the rest of his life.

May many children and teachers enjoy Jane's bench for years to come.

With love
