Members of the North Yorkshire Branch visited Chuck in Scarborough Hospital
yesterday 27/1. He looked as though he had been through a Mangle not surprising
considering at the age of 87 he had been involved in a traffic accident that had
written off two cars.
It had certainly aged him but he was able to tell us
about one of his experiences in Germany, difficult for him but a good sign and
also at the same time had a jocular rapport with the Tea Trolley Consultant. Of
course his concern was his inability to visit his wife Kath who we know has been
in a nursing home this last couple of years or more and until this accident had
visited her daily. He is expected to remain in hospital for a further month we
hope that on discharge he can return to independent living.
Health and Distance makes visiting Chuck for many of us difficult, however as
you all know Chuck over many years has entertained us with his many
contributions to The Griff, Provost Parade and other Publications, with
anecdotes - always amusing - of his career in the Royal Air Force Police
beginning in 1948 how many of us remember that far back?.
Let us now
say it is 'Payback Time' and we help Chuck through this rough patch, by sending
him a line or card w.h.y. anything amusing that will help his days along.
