Centenary Celebration

Diary entry by Dudley’s daughter:

New pages have been added to the blog covering the special day!  To view them click above on:  Air Display Photos, Vintage Photos, The Celebration  & Guests or Centenary Day!

Lots of photos have now been added!


Dudley really enjoyed his day and would like to thank everyone who came and made it so special for him.  He admits he was rather overwhelmed on the day but has lots of wonderful memories of it and has been chatting avidly about it all.

At the last count he had received over 90 cards – and they still keep coming!  He is thrilled by them all and the wonderful comments in them.

Apart from the mass of cards from the UK, messages and cards flooded in from Australia, Mauritius, South Africa, Canada and America.

People have made and even painted special cards – and all have really touched him.  So thank you everyone.

He is in fine form again today!

99 and 365 days – not out!!

This evening my daughter asked me to what do I attribute my long life?

My answer is “Reading books which have a purpose”

My daughter has also added: Consumption of copious amounts of salt, sugar, full-fat milk, double cream and butter! She’s probably right!

Note from daughter: Please let the weather be fair tomorrow at noon. At the moment it’s not looking too good!

My approaching celebration

My children seem hard at work with schemes for celebrating my 100th birthday!

They keep asking me pointed questions about my life and who I have met so goodness knows what they are planning! All I know is there are to be “lots of surprises”
