John Douglas Jones

John Douglas Jones (1939-46) has written from Clifton in Bristol. He remembers with affection the staff who provided him with a sound grounding for his career in the aircraft industry. He writes:

I moved to Bristol to start my apprenticeship with the Bristol Aeroplane Company and have lived in Bristol ever since. I retired in 1989 having specialised in the design of Composite structures for 35 years. Modern military and Civil aircraft are progresively using increasing volumes of these materials.

I have been a keen sailplane pilot for 60 years and still play an active role in the technical aspects of sailplane operation. I would very much like to hear from anyone who would remember me from the period at school.
