After retiring from Teaching and Lecturing in both Higher and Further Education, John has indulged his lifetime
love of being in wild country; especially that of Dartmoor, the Lake District and Scotland.
He has a passion for history and after a career in the Royal Air Force has been able to combine his experience
as an aviator with that of researching the final operation of X3054, its crew and of its final resting place on the
slopes of Hameldown Dartmoor.
